Auris™ Health celebrates being selected as the winner of Pharma Intelligence’s Medtech Insight Award in the category of Best Technological Innovation: Devices for its Monarch™ Platform, a first-of-its-kind robotic technology indicated for diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopic procedures.
The Medtech Insight Awards were established in 2018 to recognize outstanding achievements of the devices and diagnostics companies, teams, individuals and products that are improving patient care, quality of life and the entire healthcare environment worldwide. Judges evaluate products that represent the most innovative new approach to care by addressing an unmet clinical need; by changing the practice of healthcare to be more effective, efficient or less error-prone; or by expanding technology to new patient populations.
“Auris’ growing list of honors is a testimony to the progress we’ve made in our mission to transform medical intervention using the power of robotics,” said Eric Davidson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “At Auris, our vision is to create a platform capable of enabling advanced diagnosis and therapy for a spectrum of disease, using the least-invasive approach. We are honored to be recognized for driving positive change across the medtech industry and extend our congratulations to the other category winners.”
With Monarch, Auris aims to leverage the power of flexible robotics to open up new possibilities in endoscopy – the use of small cameras and tools to enter the body through its natural openings. The Monarch™ Platform utilizes a familiar controller interface that physicians use to navigate the flexible robotic endoscope to the periphery of the lung with improved reach, vision and control. The Monarch™ Platform has a robotic bronchscope with a dedicated camera and instrument channel that allow continuous vision throughout the entire procedure.See the list of winners
