The Stryker CORE Powered Instrument Driver (console) provides an integrated, centrally controlled environment that promotes safe and economical surgical practice.
The console’s software provides control over system components including the console, the graphical user interface (GUI), the irrigation pump, and the connected handpieces and footswitches (see figure 1). The software’s file management capability allows you to save and store user preference sekings and have convenient access to a favorites list of the most frequently used files to improve efficiency.
The color display, with its touch sensitive screen, provides an intuitive graphical user interface that allows you to view multiple system components and set their parameters with the touch of a finger. Changes may be made rapidly, with little to no interruption during surgery.
Multiple handpieces and footswitches may be connected and operated simultaneously from a single console. Because options vary among different handpieces, the console will only display those options that are related to the connected handpiece.
An integral irrigation pump system reliably supplies coolant/irrigation to the cutting site with adjustable flow rates.
Various cutting accessories and irrigation cassettes used with the system are also recognized and identified on the console screen by means of a wireless tag technology.
Console settings, like display brightness and speaker volume, may be easily adjusted. The on board speaker provides audible feedback during operation and configuration.
The console accepts either 100 VAC – 230 VAC input and has the capability to power heavy-duty handpieces.
The Stryker Firewire Backbone (SFB) serial connection provides a serial communications channel between the console and other devices. This feature allows sofMare upgrades over a computer network.
