The Endowrist PK Dissecting Forceps will provide da Vinci(R) Surgical System users greater tissue management capabilities utilizing the unique traits of PK Technology for a variety of robotically assisted surgical procedures.

The da Vinci Surgical System is used in several major institutions worldwide in advanced or complex surgical procedures. As a result of this collaboration surgeons will be able to achieve a similar tissue effect in both robotics and manual laparoscopic surgery.

Gyrus believes this partnership will further reflect the position that PK Technology is rapidly establishing itself as the RF energy of choice in hospitals worldwide where laparoscopic surgery is performed both robotically and manually.

In a joint statement Tom Murphy Gyrus ACMI Executive Vice President and Aleks Cukic, Intuitive Surgical Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Planning said: "We are delighted to work together to provide our customers with an innovative new product that extends the benefits of Intuitive's da Vinci Surgical System and Gyrus ACMI's PK Technology tissue management system."

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
