Media Alert: Hansen Medical's Frederic Moll, M.D. Invited to Present at Royal Society of Medicine's Medical Innovations Summit 2010

LONDON--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) -   Frederic H. Moll, M.D., co-founder and executive chairman of the board of directors for Hansen Medical, Inc., will present at the Royal Society of Medicine's (RSM) annual Medical Innovations Summit on July 11, 2010.

What: Dr. Moll will highlight the success and benefits of the company's Sensei® X Robotic Catheter System and its Artisan™ Extend Control Catheter. The Sensei X Robotic Catheter System allows physicians to instinctively position robotic catheters in difficult anatomical locations within the heart in a stable and controlled manner. The system consists of a physician workstation capable of controlling a robotic arm, which is attached near the foot of the procedure table. The robotic arm maneuvers the Artisan Control Catheter. Studies demonstrate that use of Hansen Medical's robotic platform help to increase safety and reduce both radiation and fluoroscopy exposure.

When: Sunday, July 11, Session 4, 12:30 - 13:30, followed by a Q&A session with all speakers.

Where: The Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London W1G0AE, UK.
