Smart Connections and Setup Flexibility

Kick® EM is developed for electromagnetic navigated ENT sinus surgery. Its minimalistic design makes Kick EM portable and easy to setup. Kick EM consists of three parts: the field generator, the connection panel and the Kick monitor cart. The field generator, fixed on a positioning plate for optimized patient setup, creates the electromagnetic field around the patient’s head.

Mounted with secure hooks to the O.R. table, the connection panel is the interface between the tracking unit and the navigation system. A step-by-step animated workflow guides the user through the setup steps and the surgical procedure.
