Minimally Invasive CI Surgery of Tomorrow
OtoJig™ tools are designed to provide a standardized and simple solution to ensure an optimal surgery outcome. In order to do so and centered on an overall ease of use, the OtoJig™ system does not require complex mechanics and is shipped with an easy-to-use planning software, which is optimized for OR environments.
Providing a rigid assembly that guides the drill, it is possible to maintain a high drill path accuracy. The planning software and the drilling precision help to identify and save critical structures, such as the facial nerve, and ensures adherence to safety margins.
Once planned, the overall procedure can be performed fast and reliable. A brief comparison shows, that due to lesser drilling time, the overall operation room time can be reduced tremendously.
By employing OtoJig™ in small and big clinics alike, a higher therapeutic safety for patients is achievable. The possibility for a qualified treatment nearby the patients' home town, not only affects the service in rural areas, but ensures a more therapeutic environment, whilst recovering.
The presented procedure allows surgeons to perform CI implantations in a routined manner, with lesser risks, so that optimal and reproducible results can be achieved. By providing all tools necessary, OtoJig™ enables a more accurate electrode placement, and maintains a higher predictability for operation room time, needed.
The lesser operation room time helps hospitals to keep finances in check and to reduce costs per procedure. By providing a standardized workflow, it is possible to stay competitive, without a trade-off in service quality. Reduced risks help the healthcare systems to reduce potential follow-up costs.
Awards & Certificates
