Corindus Vascular Robotics received 510(k) clearance for the first automated robotic software designed for its CorPath GRX surgical platform.

The proprietary software allows the operator to quickly navigate to a targeted lesion by automatically rotating the guidewire upon joystick retraction.

Preclinical data demonstrated a significant reduction in wiring time among a highly-experienced group of physicians when comparing robotic wiring versus robotic wiring with the software feature enabled.

The software won CE Mark approval in January.
