“It is a great honor to receive this recognition on behalf of the MST team for the AutoLap system,” commented Dennis Feldman, MST’s Senior Director of Sales and Marketing in the USA, at the ceremony. “It attests to their professionalism and commitment in meeting a market need for innovation and efficiency in minimally invasive surgery.”

AutoLap™ is the only image-guided robotic laparoscope positioning system for minimally invasive surgery. The system interacts with the surgeon’s movements in the surgical cavity, guiding the robotic laparoscope positioner in real time, offering the surgeon full and natural control of the surgical procedure and an optimal field of view. It is currently indicated for general laparoscopic, gynecologic as well as urologic procedures with standard laparoscopes or rigid endoscopes.
