technIQ- Smart Procedural Automation

STANDARDIZING PCI WITH ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION

technIQ Smart Procedural Automation is a set of automated robotic movements designed for the CorPath® GRX System. The automations replicate the manual techniques of highly skilled interventionalists to provide predictable and consistent movements that aid in advanced navigation, lesion crossing, and device manipulation during complex coronary and peripheral interventional procedures.

A COMPREHENSIVE SERIES OF MOVES

Rotate on Retract, the first automation in the technIQ series was introduced in 2018 to assist with wire navigation. The software has been expanded to include four new moves: Spin, Wiggle, Dotter and Constant Speed.*

technIQ AT A GLANCE

techniQ
Ror'

ROTATE ON RETRACT (RoR)

GUIDEWIRE NAVIGATION

To reduce navigation time in difficult anatomies, such as tortuous vessels, RoR automatically rotates the guidewire when joystick is retracted and redirects guidewire tip.

Wiggle'

WIGGLE

GUIDEWIRE NAVIGATION

To prevent prolapses in tortuous anatomy during guidewire navigation, Wiggle oscillates the guidewire as it advances.

Wiggle'

SPIN

LESION CROSSING

To efficiently cross lesions in complex cases and difficult anatomies, Spin utilizes clockwise and counterclockwise rotations of the guidewire.

GUIDEWIRE DRIVE

Wiggle'

DOTTER

LESION CROSSING

To aid in lesion crossing and delivery of therapy, especially in very narrow or calcified lesions, Dotter utilizes rapid linear back-and-forth motions as the device advances.

DEVICE DRIVE

BOTH

Wiggle'

CONSTANT SPEED

ANATOMY MEASUREMENT

To enable precise measurement of the anatomy, Constant Speed maintains a controlled, consistent speed of 2mm/s or 5mm/s, as selected by the user on the guidewire or device.

Testimonials

“ The addition of the technIQ automation series to the CorPath GRX system affords the operator a variety of automated wire movements to navigate diverse vascular anatomy. ”

Jon George, MD Interventional Cardiology and Endovascular Medicine

Testimonials

“ With the help of created algorithms taken from the best interventional operators you can get rid of the trial & error method for vessel navigation. It is as if Tiger Woods hits a golf ball and we can make the robot hit the golf ball the same way. That way everyone gets the opportunity to play at that high level.”

Bill Lombardi, MD Director, Complex CAD Therapies

Testimonials

“ This new software algorithm gives the operator new possibilities to advance and facilitate the treatment, especially with complex lesions.”

Jean Fajadet, MD Interventional Cardiologist,
PCR Vice-Chairman, and Course Director of EuroPCR

Testimonials

“ Adoption requires purposeful practice – that means that you have to change how you do things, but if you do change, you will become much more efficient, much safer for you and for your patients.”
