Leonardo 3D Vision System for Robotic Surgery meets FDA Class 1 qualifications

3D Surgical Solutions prepares to launch REACH3D technology into medical marketplace

May 20, 2012 (Atlanta, GA) - REACH3D, an S3D industry innovation leader, had been chosen by 3D Surgical Solutions as a development partner in creating a device whose purpose was to bring the benefits of stereoscopic 3D (S3D) to the entire surgical team that supports procedures performed with the Davinci Surgical Robot. Currently only the surgeon sees in S3D and the team must perform all tasks using standard 2D imagery. This device, the Leonardo 3D Vision System, has been completed and has achieved all necessary FDA certifications as a Class 1 medical device.

Throughout the development and certification process multiple product demonstrations were performed in order to ensure the product met the stringent standards of the surgical teams it was designed to support. During this time the Leonardo 3D Vision system received continuously positive marks for its capability to allow surgeries to both be safer for the patient and progress at a much quicker pace (as the lack of S3D visualization for those support team members cause them to move quite slowly) thus raising the patient’s quality rating of the hospital, potentially lessening patient recovery time and creating greater profits for the hospital as they perform more procedures in a given period of time.

“The Leonardo 3D Vision System is a software/hardware solution encased in a 2U rack mounted appliance that enables the entire surgical team to view a minimally invasive procedure in S3D and also records and even transmits the procedure in S3D to other locations across the internet all in real time” noted founding partner John Barnett. “We look forward to supporting 3D Surgical Solutions in their upcoming launch of this product into the Robotic surgery marketplace.”


REACH3D is changing the way we interact with our world by bringing stereoscopic 3D out of the movie theater and into our everyday lives as a potent and effective productivity tool. As a 3D industry leader REACH3D offers a complete solution for 3D DOOH needs including Digital Signage and Event Marketing. Its Absorb3D division supports markets as diverse as Military, Medical, Consumer Products, and Education by using its years of S3D experience to enable virtually any product, service or process with the power and utility of stereoscopic 3D. As an innovation leader REACH3D continues to bring new products and services to the markets it serves.
