The first production-level NAVItags
The special pattern with its easy to clean
surface is critically important for the
accuracy of the navigation.
The NAVItags™ are a key component of the Naviswiss surgical navigation system. The navigation unit detects each tag by its unique pattern and accurately determines its position within the surgical space. This ultimately leads to precisely measured anatomic landmarks and undisturbed navigation of the surgical instruments.
The tags must be easily cleanable with a wet cloth to remove blood stains quickly and efficiently and they have to be insensitive to bright OR light to avoid any disturbance.
Vigorous tests with this first serial production batch have demonstrated excellent performance in all requirements.
