XACT Robotics® Winner of 2021 Best MedTech Robotic Company in the Field of Minimal Access Surgery (Radiology) by MedTech Visionaries Awards
MedTech Visionaries Awards (MVA) have concluded their 2nd annual program to provide recognition and increased visibility to a sector that continues to make a positive impact in how we view our world and interact with it. The event is hosted by the creative strategist people at Light4Soul and was sponsored by Boost Awards. This year’s awards saw entries from around the world who have set the standard for innovation and creativity in the MedTech field. Based on the pool of entries the MVA’s judges selected XACT Robotics® as the 2021 winner of the Best MedTech Robotic Company in the Field of Minimal Access Surgery (Radiology).
XACT Robotics is advancing the field of radiology with its XACT ACE™ Robotic System, the world’s first and only hands-free robotic platform, which delivers unparalleled targeting accuracy, consistency and efficiency during image-guided percutaneous procedures. Physicians rely on interventional procedures such as ablations, biopsies and targeted drug delivery to diagnose and treat a wide range of serious health problems including certain cancers. XACT ACE benefits both patients and healcare providers with the systems unique non-linear steering and the ability to reach a target on the first insertion. The user can consistently reach targets that are small or in hard-to-reach areas, potentially leading to earlier diagnosis and treatment for patients.
“We are honored to be recognized by the MedTech Visionaries committee for the XACT ACE™ Robotic System and our commitment to improving patient care,” said Chen Levin, CEO of XACT Robotics. “We are dedicated to ensuring all patients are afforded the opportunity to receive earlier diagnosis and treatment of their disease while we partner with health systems globally to improve radiology department efficiencies.”
Today, percutaneous procedures are completed manually by a radiologist or a member of the radiology team who uses medical images to guide instruments into the body through a minimal incision. Using the XACT ACE™ technology, the physician or team member, based on real-time images, plans the procedure and the trajectory of the instrument. Once approved, the robot then inserts and steers the instrument into the patient following the clinical planning guide (trajectory) provided by the radiologist. The XACT ACE™ Robotic System can also allow the instrument to follow a non-direct path (non-linear) to ensure the instrument can be kept on track even if the target or surrounding tissue moves during the procedure, thus significantly increasing the chance that the procedure instrument will reach the target on the first attempt. This can help reduce the need to insert an instrument into a patients’ body multiple times to reach a target, thus also reducing radiation exposure to the physician and patients.
