Ergonomically designed instrument with double jointed structure
provides 360 ° multi-degree of freedom and intuitive control.

Articulation + Essential

ArtiSential is a blending of two words Articulation and Essential.
Our multi-joint-end-effectors allow for articulation that is essential for accessing narrow surgical sites and precision surgery.

"One word that can describe ‘ArtiSential’ is its ‘intuitiveness’. "
The movement of the user’s hand, wrist, and fingers are synchronized with the corresponding movements of the end-effector.

Synchronized movement between end-effector and user's hand

  • OPEN


  • UP

  • DOWN


  • LEFT

ArtiSential’s end-effectors have both a vertical and horizontal joint structure that are synchronized with the delicate movements of the user’s hands.
This allows for greater access to narrow surgical sites.
Its multiple degrees of movement allows the users to perform more complex techniques in
a wider variety of surgical procedures than those with rigid or straight instruments.

How to use the lock

① Push the lever outward ② until the lever goes down and activates the lock.

Deactivating the locking feature

When the locking mechanism is activated UP/DOWN, LEFT/RIGHT articulating joint is fixed and cannot move,
But OPEN/CLOSE action of end-effector is possible.

Features & Advantages

360 degrees of freedom provides access to narrow spaces

ArtiSential’s double-jointed end effector allows the instrument
to move with 360 degrees of freedom, which enables various angles of approach
to the surgical site while mimicking the function of the human hand.

Intuitive Control

ArtiSential’s end-effector movement matches with the user’s fingers and
wrist movements, enabling intuitive manipulation and control
not found in conventional instruments.

Locking Feature (Optional)

For the model with locking feature, the articulating ability of ArtiSential instruments
can be controlled using the locking lever. When the locking lever is activated,
the double jointed end effector is locked in any desired geometry within its range of motion.
This will fix the UP/DOWN, LEFT/RIGHT articulating joints while OPEN/CLOSE action is allowed.
