Sentante enables the remote manipulation of guidewires and catheters
for quick and safe endovascular disease management.

Remote interventions reduce the response time for
stroke, heart attack,
and bleeding

Uniqueness
of Sentante:

Disruptive technology:

01

Fully robotic

The manipulation of three endovascular intstruments simultaneously allows the entire procedure to be performed robotically

man

02

Teleoperated

The endovascular procedure can be performed from a different room or hospital

man

03

Haptic feedback

Physicians can feel the catheter and guidewire just as if they were standing near the patient

man

04

Universal compatibility

A variety of dedicated catheters and guidewires are compatible,
not depending on the manufacturer

man

05

Precise manipulation

Accurate, submillimetric instrument positioning and stent placement

man

06

Ergonomic workplace

Allows physicians to fully concentrate on an ongoing case without the use of heavy lead aprons

man

07

No additional training is needed

Controlled with the conventional endovascular instruments

man

08

Occupational hazard-free

Medical personnel are not exposed to hazardous X-rays

man

Future
perspectives

01

Training module

Realistic training platform with haptic feedback
for residents and new physicians

man

02

Device testing platform

Simulated models for affordable and safe
training and testing of endovascular devices

man

03

Artificial intelligence based automation

Semi-automated routine tasks such as catheter or
guidewire exchange
