The SPORT™ Surgical System prototype successfully demonstrates the key features of the system. These include two multi-articulating instruments, each capable of moving with seven degrees of freedom and an intra-abdominal 3D HD vision system. The two instruments and the vision system are all housed within a 25mm diameter port. Via this port, the SPORT™ Surgical System is inserted through a single 25mm incision in the patient’s abdomen. The multi-articulating instruments and the 3D HD vision system then deploy and become fully operational by the surgeon, who is seated comfortably at a surgeon console.
