About Atracsys LLC
Atracsys LLC is an independent privately held company founded in 2003 to exploit over ten years of research in minimally invasive surgery and optical tracking at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Our experts design, manufacture and market the highest precision devices for researchers working on leading-edge 3D optical tracking in medical research, education and industry.
We only do active optical tracking; considered by researchers as the most precise and reliable form of tracking available.
As an engineering and development company geared to the needs of the most demanding users, Atracsys has developed “best-in-class” precision active tracking systems (the easyTrack and the accuTrack) that can be easily customized and integrated into various research applications in the medical and research fields.
We recognise that not everyone is an expert on 3D tracking solutions and has the tools to put all of the elements together in an appropriate and cost effective manner. As such, Atracsys is able to help you with first of all, asking the right questions concerning your potential development or project before you start. As part of our consulting business, we are also happy to propose a custom software development that will meet your needs.
01.08.02 Surgical instruments and products
Boomerang XL, Inline Marker and 4 LED Pointer 19.09.2007
Other markers with custom geometries can be designed for your specific project. Please contact us for more information.
Custom Marker Kit 19.09.2007
As a researcher, we understand that in certain circumstances you would like to develop your own custom marker. We are happy to sell you the components you will need to make this happen. We have regular high-speed as well as autoclavable cable with Ridel 9-pin connectors and high-quality IR LEDs. Wiring diagrams will be provided to help you build your own markers.
The easyBox is designed to extend the number of active markers beyond the four onboard markers (9-pin) that are provided on the easyTrack. An additional four 9-pin markers (i.e. Pointer, Inline, Boomerang and Boomerang XL) and four 10-pin medical markers can be connected via the easyBox.
No additional power is needed, the easyBox is powered directly from the easyTrack. It also allows you to interconnect up to three easyTracks for projects that require increased spatial volume and flexibility.
Connect two easyTrack devices easily using the 2.9-meter long easyCable. The markers of both devices are then shared and data acquisition is synchronized.
Magic Arm 19.09.2007
The Manfrotto Magic Arm allows you to securely mount your easyTrack on almost any surface; such as a pole, metal frame or desk. The quick position and release system lets you position the easyTrack exactly where you want it.
Related usage instructions are provided with each Manfrotto Magic arm.
VESA Style Adapter 19.09.2007
In addition to the standard tripod connection hole (1/4” – M20) on the bottom of the easyTrack 200 and 500 we offer a VESA style 75mm Adaptor (standard for LCD monitors etc.) with an orienting handle. This adaptor opens up the possibility to mount your easyTrack on one of the many monitor arms that are commercially available for general and hospital use.
Wired Boomerang Marker 19.09.2007
The offset centre LED allows superior tracking of the instrument through many planes of view. The Boomerang marker is available in regular configuration (that is ideal for laboratory use) and autoclavable (version that use special LEDs). Our Boomerang markers are individually calibrated with a typical calibration error of 0.04mm RMS making them up to six times more precise than competitive markers.
All Atracsys active markers are designed and manufactured using the best available materials to guarantee the highest possible accuracy at a very affordable price. The superior accuracy of the markers follows through to higher tip precision of the instrument, probe or other tools. Multiple fixing points allow you to easily fix the markers to your specific tool or instrument. The lightweight plastic of the markers is a real plus, especially in situations where the use of non-metallic markers is required.
Markers are available in both regular and autoclavable models. In the event that you would need a specially designed marker that cannot be built from our custom marker kit (see below), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
accu track 19.09.2007
The new accuTrack 3D active tracking system
Highest performance active tracking combining innovative technology and sleek design.
A slightly larger version of the accuTrack compact that delivers an extra level of precision at further distances. At only 53cm long and 1.4kg, this system can be used in most applications.
The accuTrack machine is designed to work with both wired (via the accuBox) and wireless tools. If your application requires the tracking of moving objects, the 4000hz acquisition speed will guarantee that you do not lose any precision.
If you are currently using an old passive system and are not happy with the accuracy, graduate to the accuTrack.
For more complete details on the accuTrack , please refer to the PDF (436 KB).
easyTrack 200 19.09.2007
Superior Active Tracking, Compact Size, Cost-Effective
The easyTrack 200 stands out because of its compact size – only slightly larger than a one-liter carton of milk. This compact size opens up tracking possibilities never before imagined. For example, the easyTrack 200, which weight only 1.2 kg, can be easily mounted on a microscope for 3D tracking with augmented reality applications.
The superior precision of the easyTrack active tracking system gives you the confidence to design tracking solutions that are a major step ahead. For more information on active tracking and precision, please see the Technology section. With four onboard active markers, you are able to easily handle most tracking applications. Both normal and autoclavable markers are available (see accessories).
The two working or spatial volumes available on the easyTrack 200 (see right image) allow you to chose the level of precision and working volume that you need for your specific application. For larger working volumes please see the easyTrack 500.
easyTrack 500 19.09.2007
The easyTrack 500 has been designed to work at close range for medium volume tracking applications. At only 1.6 kg and 55 cm in length, the easyTrack 500 can easily be placed close to the project field without interfering with you field of view.
If you are tired of tracking systems that are inflexible, the open system feature of the easyTrack 500 will be a dream come true. No complicated development kits are needed to integrate the easyTrack 500 into your development.
The superior precision of the easyTrack active tracking system gives you the confidence to design tracking solutions that are a major step ahead. For more information on active tracking and precision, please see the Technology section. With four active markers that plug directly into the easyTrack, you are able to easily handle most tracking applications. Both normal and autoclavable markers are available (see accessories).
The two working or spatial volumes available on the easyTrack 500 (see right image) allow you to chose the level of precision and working volume that you need for your specific application.
