NDS Surgical Gains Health Canada Approval for ZeroWire HD Video Solution

By Tony Rizzo — November 15, 2011

NDS Surgical Imaging announced that it has received Health Canada approval for its ZeroWire wireless surgical video technology. Utilizing the ultra-wideband (UWB) frequency spectrum to minimize interference, ZeroWire delivers full high-definition video in the OR with less than 1 frame latency, giving surgical teams a wireless solution for a wide range of interventional procedures. The Health Canada approval extends ZeroWire’s global marketability, with the product already approved for sale in the U.S., Europe, China, Japan, and Chile since its introduction in March 2010.
 
The ZeroWire solution is comprised of a memory-enabled transmitter and receiver pairing system. In compliance with the EN 60601-1-2 standard, ZeroWire is designed specifically for the transmission challenges of the surgical environment. The mobility of the wireless system gives surgical staff tremendous flexibility in monitor placement, and the elimination of cables removes clutter and reduces cleaning time. ZeroWire offers easy installation, immediate connectivity, and image quality comparable to a wired solution.
 
"Our customers worldwide are now enjoying the benefits of a cost-efficient, high-quality wireless video link in the OR,” said Jens Ruppert, Vice President & General Manager, Surgical Business Unit at NDSsi. “We look forward to releasing the ZeroWire technology in Canada, and providing more surgical teams with the wireless flexibility they’ve been looking for."
 
Based in Silicon Valley, CA, NDS Surgical Imaging delivers HD visualization and informatics products that enable the clinical imaging solutions of the future, and drive constant improvements in collaborative medicine. NDSsi is a privately held company with US-based R&D and manufacturing facilities, and a global presence with sales in more than 35 countries.
