The Endofix exo passive support arm provides the support that you need during surgery to maintain the position of the endoscope. This results in the ability to actively use both hands for the more complex requirements of surgical procedures, even the most extreme camera angles and endoscope positions.
At the touch of a button, the Endofix exo can be moved into the most desirable position to provide optimal visibility within the surgical field. The Endofix exo allows the endoscope to remain stable and tremor free, under the direct control of the surgeon. This provides a clear image for the duration of the surgical procedure. The Endofix exo frees up the hand of the surgeon previously reserved for holding the endoscope and camera in place- essentially giving the surgeon a 3rd hand for the whole of the procedure.
The fine adjustments required during the surgical procedure are easy to execute with the Endofix exo and can be made in seconds. The position of the endoscope is then automatically locked until manually released by the surgeon. This ensures that the visibility is always as its best.
Ergonomically the Endofix exo is useful in eliminating the need for maintaining awkward static positions for long periods of time during surgery, which may lead to pain.
This can lead to reduction in discomfort and fatigue that can be cause by long surgical procedures.
Clinical specialities include (but are not limited to) ENT, Head and Neck, Skull Base Surgery and Neurosurgery.

A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
"Procedural physicians, such as surgeons and interventional medical specialists, have a high risk for work-related MSDs. This is due to long work hours involving repetitive movements, static and awkward postures, and challenges with instrument design, especially given the rapid rate of innovation in the setting of a diversifying workforce. Ergonomists have described the surgeon’s work environment and working conditions as equal to, if not at times harsher than, those of certain industrial workers." Read the Article >>>
