da Vinci Xi - surgeon console

2015 IDEA Gold Award

The da Vinci Xi is the next frontier for minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci Xi System is optimized for highly complex, multi-quadrant surgery and simpler, single-quadrant surgery.

The surgeon’s console provides the surgeon a 3D view of the surgical field with a comfortable seating position. The height of the immersion area is adjustable to fit the surgeons size.

The arm rest provides the surgeon ample support allowing him to comfortably manipulate the master slave system. The head rest area was designed to reduce glare and provide a more open feeling around the surgeons head.

Working with Intuitive Surgical for over 9 years as the lead industrial designer, spanning 3 generations of surgical systems [daVinci S, daVinci Si, daVinci Xi], Ricardo and his team have developed a comprehensive understanding of robotic surgery design, ergonomics, work-flow and user-interface around these complex and sophisticated surgical systems.
