Surgeon-Controlled Robotics

A lot more.
And, a lot less too.

Experience Surgeon-Controlled Robotics to discover a complete new level of precise positioning. This new innovation enables intelligent positioning functions – reducing manual hassle. And, helping you to focus on your treatment. ZEISS KINEVO 900 delivers a lot more positioning precision with a lot less effort.

Surgeon-controlled Robotics

Surgeon-Controlled Robotics assist you in visualizing structures precisely and effortlessly.

Simply focus and move around a structure to visualize the targeted anatomy – reducing any manual hassle. That’s our new PointLock functionality with ZEISS KINEVO 900.

Especially in narrow access areas, PointLock can be very useful in visualizing a larger area inside a cavity by simulating a keyhole movement.

Simply: Focus. Activate. Swivel.

Achieve accuracy in repositioning your Robotic Visualization System

ZEISS KINEVO 900 enables an efficient workflow by storing identified regions of concern in its intelligent PositionMemory. Simply recall them to visualize at exactly the same magnification, working distance and focus.

In short: Save. Move. Recall.

Active Vibration Dampening

Undisturbed surgical visualization with the Robotic Visualization System.

The Surgeon-Controlled Robotics of ZEISS KINEVO 900 enables active vibration damping.

  • Providing rock-solid stability.
  • Minimizing collateral system vibrations.

So you can focus on what matters most: your treatment.

ZEISS QEVO – The Micro-Inspection Tool

See more with less effort.

Experience QEVO® from ZEISS – the unique Micro-Inspection Tool. Go beyond the straight line view of a surgical microscope. Visualize the missing critical information behind tissue or corners. ZEISS QEVO enhances your surgical visualization by complementing the microsurgical view and enabling you to look around corners.

Inspect the perforator or examine the distal neck of the aneurysm to ensure the clip blades are fully extended.

Enhance your surgical visualization for deeper insights.

With ZEISS QEVO, the Robotic Visualization System enters a new age of surgical visualization.

Discover unexplored areas during microsurgical intervention without additional footprint – for better clinical decisions.

ZEISS QEVO – always available.

ZEISS QEVO is truly integrated! Just plug into ZEISS KINEVO 900 and switch back and forth between views.

ZEISS QEVO is fully autoclavable! So there’s no need for any additional draping.
