The CONDOR Control System is a surgical command center that puts medical staff in control of the devices, patient information, and even the lighting and temperature of the operating room. The control system is designed as the nucleus of Smith & Nephew’s Digital Operating Rooms (Digital ORs), customized surgical solutions designed to improve patient care and operating room efficiency. CONDOR technology, incorporated into Digital ORs, makes it possible for a medical team to send commands to medical devices, digital cameras, image management systems and other components using voice commands and a wireless touch panel. It also enables real-time streaming audio and video of the procedure over the Internet to classrooms, offices and consulting surgeons in other locations, around the world. The modular system can be configured to work with a hospital’s existing information systems, and it can be upgraded as new features and new technology are released.
