Project Description

The Magellan™ Robotic System cannulates peripheral vessels with a proprietary technology that delivers simultaneous distal tip control of a catheter and a sheath, from a centralized, remote workstation 1.  A growing body of pre-clinical and clinical data suggests procedural efficiencies in complex endovascular procedures.

A Magellan™ Robotic System has the potential to benefit patients, physicians and hospitals in the following ways:


  • Access robotic procedural precision 4


  • Drive incremental patients
  • Increase efficiencies 3


  • Perform fast, predictable cases1
  • Reduce radiation exposure3 and lead-related stress5 because physician can be seated away from radiation source
  • Grow physician practice


Manufactured by: Hansen Medical, U.S.A.
