Respiratory surgery, which includes many different types of surgeries to repair or remove lung tissue, requires that specialized surgeons perform complex procedures with a high degree of precision, flexibility, and control. Whether it is for minimally invasive procedures or open surgical procedures, respiratory surgeons have a vital role to play in today’s modern healthcare environment. Part of our mission at Novid Surgical is to provide respiratory surgeons with the ideal tools they need to take their life-saving surgeries further through the use of articulated arms and associated products.

FISSO Swiss-Made Products

FISSO articulated arms are used around the world as a quality product for use in many fields, including respiratory surgical practices. Novid Surgical is very proud to be the exclusive seller of FISSO products in the United States! These individualized holding systems are user-friendly, reliable, and also provide plenty of customization in their configuration.

The Benefits of Articulated Arms in Respiratory Surgery

Sterilizable Articulated Arms for Respiratory Surgery

It is very important that surgical tools and implements are able to be sterilized, particularly in fields like respiratory surgery. The FISSO Sterilizable Articulated Arm from Novid Surgical is ideal for such environments! These medical-grade articulated arms aid respiratory surgeons in performing delicate procedures that demand precision and stability, acting as an extension of the surgeon’s arms — often eliminating the need for additional staff that could crowd the operating table. Being easily sterilizable between uses, these arms are perfectly suited for surgical environments that see many patients over a short period of time.

These sterilizable articulated arms feature a device interface that firmly holds surgical instruments for surgeons during respiratory surgeries. This modular piece is designed to adapt precisely to a vast array of surgical instruments, and features a convenient quick-release system for instant swapping of tools as needed.

Novid Surgical Non-Sterilizable Articulated Arms

Utilizing an identical manufacturing and design philosophy as FISSO sterilizable products, we developed non-sterilizable articulated arms for respiratory surgery in environments that do not require the same harsh and exacting demands for steam sterilization. Alternatively, these non-sterilizable articulated arms are simple to disinfect without sacrificing any performance or functionality. 

The Novid Surgical non-sterilizable articulated arms have been designed and manufactured to provide the maximum degree of freedom and range of motion for respiratory surgeons, and are simple to disassemble or reassemble without any extra tools. This makes these articulated arms well-suited for both single-use and reusable applications. Available in a variety of sizes and configurations, these articulated arms are perfect for: 

  • Respiratory surgery research and development
  • Educational purposes
  • Emergency medical services
  • Single-use surgeries followed by disinfection
  • And more

FISSO Patient Arm Positioners

Whereas traditional arm boards are fairly limited in their range of motion, FISSO Patient Arm Positioners provide a level of versatility that is unmatched in the medical field. This stability is extraordinarily valuable, especially in areas of surgical healthcare that demand precision and accuracy like respiratory surgery. While traditional arm boards used in many practices require as many as five additional accessories to properly function, FISSO Patient Arm Positioners feature a one-step setup design and provide a dynamic range of motion that is impossible with traditional boards. A central locking mechanism both supports and positions patients’ arms with ease, speed, and stability. 

Respiratory surgeons will see the value in the compact design of these arm positioners, as they free up much-needed space around an operating table, and patients will appreciate the viscoelastic padding that keeps them comfortable throughout procedures.
