Touchless Interaction with PACS in Sterile Operations

TIPSO™ is an award-winning technology platform that revolutionizes intraprocedural interaction with radiology images. TIPSO™ devices enable over-the-drape controls for physicians to navigate/manipulate live and historical imaging records in a touchless and seamless fashion.

About TIPSO AirPad®

Compact | Wireless | Workhorse

TIPSO AirPad® provides a palm-sized, portable solution for convenient control of image navigation, allowing placement inside the sterile field. Touchless finger movements over the sensing surface enable activation of a routine set of controls to interact with procedural imaging to meet the everyday demands.

Designed for
Operative Use

  • Proprietary capacitive technology enables sensing of finger movements over the TIPSO AirPad® surface to activate commands
  • Compact embodiment allows placement anywhere (in a tray or held in hand) within the narrow confines of the sterile workspace
  • Device operable inside a sterile bag

Intuitive User Control

  • An operator activates commands by performing finger twirls and swipes over the device
  • No awkward limb movements or learned hand gestures
  • Functionality covers all routine imaging controls, including scroll, zoom, pan, window/level, rotation, etc.

Connectivity and Compatibility

A control room, separated by a glass-paneled wall, hosts one or more computer workstations with patient medical data.

By connecting the USB Dongle to the workstation and setting up a wireless router for WIFI communications, TIPSOTM can wirelessly control radiology images on the chosen workstation.

While not all ORs have a designated control room, an area is always designated for non-sterile access to a computer workstation.

TIPSOTM is viewer-independent; the relevant mouse and keyboard controls sent from TIPSOTM to the workstation can be configured for any given Radiology Image Viewer Application (provided by vendors, such as Philips, Siemens, or McKesson).
