SPORT™ Surgical System

A robotic system like no other!

The SPORT Surgical System is a versatile single incision advanced robotic surgical system that features state-of the-art multi-articulated instruments with single-use replaceable tips, 3D high definition visualization on a flat-screen monitor, ergonomic open workstation and a single-arm mobile patient cart for ease of set up while enabling broad applications of single and multi-quadrant surgeries previously not possible with current robotic solutions.

Titan Medical Inc. is a Canadian public company, headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, that trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TMD) and the OTCQX in the United States (TITXF). Titan is developing the SPORT™ (Single Port Orifice Robotic Technology) Surgical System for use in minimally invasive surgery (“MIS”) that is expected to be commercially available in 2019. Titan’s robotic surgical system is being designed to expand robotic surgery into areas that are currently underserviced. This will allow surgeons to perform procedures within small to medium size surgical spaces such as general surgery and cholecystectomy. Currently, the most common medical procedures for which robotic systems are used are hysterectomies and prostatectomies. Titan plans to expand the scope and obtain approval for various surgical procedures as outlined in their Corporate Presentation.

The SPORT™ Surgical System includes the following:
* a single-port surgeon controlled robotic platform that includes a 3D vision system and interactive instruments for performing MIS procedures, and

* a surgeon workstation that provides the surgeon with an interface to the robotic platform   for controlling the interactive instruments and providing a 3D endoscopic view of inside a patient’s body during MIS procedures.
