The Sensei X robotic catheter is a minimally-invasive system, which combines advanced levels of 3D catheter control and 3D visualization.

The robotic platform is designed to provide catheter stability with force sensing, instinctive and precise catheter placement, as well as reduce radiation for both physician and patient.

The company will also unveil a software for the Sensei X robotic catheter system.

The software will include an updated CoHesion module which combines the accuracy of 3D catheter control with the visual guidance of 3D electroanatomical mapping.

The company said the software will achieve compatibility and integration with St Jude Medical’s EnSite Velocity 3.0 cardiac mapping system.

In addition, the software will include changes to the user interface which allows electrophysiologists (EPs) to perform instinctive 3D catheter control when using other 3D mapping systems without the CoHesion Module, specifically Biosense Webster’s Carto navigation system.

Hansen Medical president and CEO Bruce Barclay said, "The majority of our customers are currently using either CARTO or Ensite Velocity 3D mapping systems when performing EP procedures, and in both cases, physicians will have control of both the robotic catheter as well as the orientation of the 3D map at the Sensei X physician workstation, allowing instinctive 3D control."
