FDA approves the use of Xact Robotics remote control unit

0 users added it to the favorites

Xact Robotics has received FDA clearance for its Ace Xtend remote control unit, which allows users to robotically insert and steer the Xact Ace robotic system remotely from the control room when performing ablation probes and computed tomography-guided percutaneous procedures.

The remote guidance will ease physical strain on physicians while limiting users’ exposure to radiation and improve physicians’ efficiency by potentially shortening procedure times, the company said.

The Ace Xtend can only be used in IR operating centres with either a screen that allows a clear sight of the patient and the robot positioned on the patient, or a live video arrangement that offers the same. According to the brand, the robotic remote device will only be employed when the first milestone in the surgery operation has been accomplished.

Importance of ACE Robotic System

The advanced ACE Robotic System of XACT is an unparalleled piece of equipment to use patented S-DriveTM technology in conjunction with image-based strategy and control. Its robotic equipment placement and navigation during invasive percutaneous operations allow the device to easily change from a straight to a non-linear path. It sends equipment exactly to the predetermined aims with unsurpassed precision, incomparable consistency, and limitless effectiveness.

The Robotic device from XACT is the only exclusive piece of technology that integrates hands-free automated intervention and direction skills with picture-based process preparation and tracking to transport equipment to an intended point in the body. It is the sole type of technology capable of controlling an equipment’s nonlinear track.

Precision in locating specific organs within transcutaneous treatments for the diagnosis and management of specific malignancies and other disorders is crucial. The area of the desired focus during the operation can frequently vary as a result of motion brought on by the person or occurring inside their body. When performing and finishing percutaneous operations by hand, it is frequently required to redo a process if a tool does not properly reach its goal, which raises the hazard for the patients and the surgeon.  The device from XACT Robotics aids in increasing precision and regularity in order for any user to access small or difficult-to-reach sites, usually during the initial insertion, possibly improving patient care.

Using information from the company’s medical trials for biopsy operations, the XACT ACE Robotic device has already demonstrated to offer an unmatched 1.7mm tip-to-destination overall precision upon initial placement. The device intends to promote rapid identification and boost treatment experience by giving reliable and useful data for clinical conditions.


Innovations that might increase the productivity are essential because interventional radiology represents one of the medical specialities that will have a specialist scarcity in the nearest future. We may increase the percentage of patients that each person sees and work to reduce the disparity between both the patient and doctor groups by providing technologies that can simplify procedures and possibly cut down on process duration.

Robotic systems have made it easier to access body parts where existing manual techniques would be exceedingly difficult, and thus offer a considerable improvement in the treatment of individuals suffering from cancer and other critical illnesses.
