New 1688 AIM 4K camera

Nov 18, 2019

In a first across the Ramsay network Peninsula Private Hospital are proud to announce that we have taken delivery of the new 1688 AIM 4K camera platform from Stryker. The 1688 AIM 4K Platform is a minimally invasive surgical tower that will now provide our surgeons with superior visualisation and advanced imaging modalities across an array of specialties.

The new all-in-one system features:

  • 4K Image Resolution: Brilliant 4K resolution offers our surgeons crystal-clear images for improved visualisation during surgery.

  • L-11 Light Source and Auto-light Technology: The proprietary auto-light technology automatically adjusts based on anatomy to provide consistent lighting, enabling our surgeons to focus on the procedure at hand and nothing else.

  • Advanced Imaging Modalities: Three distinct SPY fluorescence imaging modalities+; Contrast, Overlay and ENV are integrated into the platform and enable real-time 4K fluorescence images of perfusion and critical anatomy. Studies have shown that the use of fluorescence imaging may assist surgeons in making better clinical decisions during colorectal, laparoscopic cholecystectomy and other minimally invasive procedures.

To further enhance operating room work flow, Stryker’s Connected OR Hub is fully integrated into the tower and enables seamless connectivity between devices. The Connected OR Hub allows our staff to easily stream, capture, record, and print surgical images and videos directly from the platform for later review.

Roxanne Wenn, Theatre Nurse Unit Manager, says “We chose the Stryker 1688 AIM 4K system, because it allows our surgeons and staff access to cutting edge technologies, a true multispecialty platform and allows the surgical team to see beyond the limitations of the human eye. This translates to significant workflow improvements and overall better patient outcomes”
