KALAMAZOO, Mich., May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker's Instruments group announces full availability of its most comprehensive and customizable high speed drill line, the Signature Portfolio. The lineup of Signature Portfolio components will be on display at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) in Chicago April 30 – May 4, 2016.
Stryker re-engineered and restyled its Signature Portfolio components in collaboration with surgeons to fulfill their criteria for power, function and ergonomics. The Signature Portfolio of high speed drills includes electric motors, pneumatic motors and over 90 attachments and cutting accessories, which contribute to optimal surgeon customization.
"The Signature Portfolio gives surgeons unsurpassed choice, customization and flexibility so the drill becomes an extension of their own signature style," said Lisa Kloes, Senior Director of Marketing and Medical Education, Stryker Neuro, Spine, ENT and Navigation.
In addition to the Signature Portfolio's 100 mix-and-match components, surgeons can further customize the tactile feel, response and performance of PiDrive electric drills through Stryker I.D. Touch software on the CORE Console power unit. The console saves unlimited user profiles so surgeons can quickly retrieve their personal style setting, providing the confidence that comes from having a consistent drill feel and performance.
"A surgeon's 'touch' is one of their greatest assets, and our I.D. Touch software maximizes this by allowing surgeons to adjust torque from 0-100 percent to customize how the electric drill feels and responds when pressure is applied, from low to high motor sensitivity," explains Jim Marucci, VP and General Manager of Stryker Neuro, Spine, ENT and Navigation. "Redefining drill performance to their liking, in as many ways as possible, is what the Signature Portfolio is all about."
In addition to torque/motor sensitivity, other customizable features of the Signature Portfolio include speed, acceleration and breaking rates, irrigation flow, hand switches, foot pedals and new multi-notch telescoping cutting accessories. Telescoping capability optimizes cost and inventory management by providing up to five choices (up to 10mm) in reach and shaft exposure in just one cutting tool. Stryker's Elite Series cutting accessories are also compatible with Signature Portfolio components, providing an additional 200 telescoping instruments for use and customization.
