The Gemini Surgical Control & Display System provides a safe and efficient way to control surgical devices during operative procedures. The Gemini System includes the EDC740 Main Control Unit, the FirstAlert master foot control safety system with an integrated comfort mat, a remote control unit, the SurgiClear Automatic Active Smoke Evacuator, Gemini Medical Grade Computer and Software, a surgical system cart, and infrared wireless operation. The Gemini Solution provides surgeons the ability to use preferred equipment in an integrated stack. The integration and built-in intelligence of the system supports adding future options and devices. Use of a single master foot control and the FirstAlert visual & audible warning system virtually eliminates accidental activation of an electrosurgical device.
