Corindus Vascular Robotics to Present at Design of Medical Device Conference

Corindus Vascular Robotics, a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, today announced that Tal Wenderow, Co-founder and EVP of Product & Business Development of Corindus, will present at the upcoming Design of Medical Device Conference. The conference is being held April 7-10 at The Commons Hotel & McNamara Alumni Center, on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus in Minneapolis, Minn.

CorPath is the first and only FDA-cleared technology that enables precise, robotic-assisted angioplasties to open arteries and restore blood flow in patients with coronary artery disease. The system enables precisely controlled, robotic-assisted angioplasties while the physician is seated in a lead-lined interventional cockpit protected from radiation exposure. CorPath allows the cardiologist to advance stents and guidewires millimeter-by-millimeter using joysticks and touchscreen controls.

Wenderow’s presentation, titled “Robotic Stent Placement during Coronary Intervention,” will review how robotic assistance has the potential to revolutionize vascular interventions by enabling procedures to be completed with robotic precision, which may improve outcomes. The discussion aims to provide state of the art perspective from leaders in the robotic industry. This session will take place on April 9 beginning at 2:00 p.m. CST.

“As a leader in the medical robotics space, we are pleased to have the opportunity to participate in this conference and share our insight and findings that point to an increasing need for robotics during coronary intervention,” said Tal Wenderow.

CorPath was highlighted at ACC 2014, where a live case was presented for the attendees. During the case, CorPath’s robotic precision was highlighted as the operator demonstrated the ability to move the stent in one millimeter increments, placing it where he, and the case panel, felt it was optimal for patient care.

In addition to Tal Wenderow’s talk, the catheter robotics session will feature speakers from other companies in the industry as well as academics from nationally recognized institutions.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
