RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TransEnterix, Inc. (NYSE MKT: TRXC), a medical device company that is pioneering the use of robotics to improve minimally invasive surgery, today announced the launch of a new brand identity for the ALF-X Robotic Surgical System, which henceforth will be known as The Senhance™ Surgical Robotic System (“Senhance”).
“We are pleased to announce the new brand identity for our multiport surgical robotic system,” said Todd M. Pope, President and CEO of TransEnterix. “This is a pivotal point in our growth strategy and we believe Senhance speaks directly to the benefits experienced with our system.”
Mr. Pope continued: “Our goal is to advance minimally invasive surgery and the tools surgeons have at their disposal to provide patients with the best possible care while also providing a more attractive value proposition to the hospital. Senhance is designed to enhance laparoscopic surgery and specifically empowers the senses of the surgeon in ways that were never previously possible. The security of haptics and the convenience of eye sensing camera control are meaningful ways that technology can provide a further extension of the surgeon’s skill.”
The new logo, evocative of a thumb-print combined with circuitry, is a representation of the strong connection that Senhance provides between the surgeon and technology.
Senhance carries the CE Mark for use in general surgery, gynecology, urology and thoracic surgery. TransEnterix is actively preparing a submission for U.S. FDA Clearance for Senhance.
