The 1688 AIM 4K Platform features several enhancements, such as brilliant 4K resolution and fluorescence, auto-light technology, better ergonomics and seamless standardization. Approved for use in a variety of specialties, including arthroscopy, laparoscopy, urology, gynecology, colorectal and ENT, the platform’s vivid 4K display offers consistently bright, crystal-clear images for improved surgical visualization. The advanced system’s L11 light source features Stryker’s proprietary Auto-light technology, which automatically corrects poor lighting in posterior compartments and self-adjusts based on anatomy. 


  • 4K Fluorescence: The 1688 AIM Platform is a native 4K system that includes the capability to perform real-time endoscopic visualization and near-infrared fluorescence imaging with activation control of SPY Modes from the camera head, including Overlay, ENV and Contrast. The 1688 AIM Platform is indicated for use during minimally invasive surgery using native 4K endoscope visible light as well as visual assessment of vessels, blood flow and related tissue perfusion, and at least one of the major extra-hepatic bile ducts (cystic duct, common bile duct and common hepatic duct), using near infrared imaging.
  • SPY Overlay: Spy Overlay mode is best in class with an improved white-light image integrated with fluorescence in real time, no toggling necessary. This modality processes two white light images and inserts infrared in between to achieve an overlay on the white light image. Our color overlay is 2X faster than the average image; by collecting 120 frames per second versus the standard 60 frames per second.
  • SPY ENV: Endoscopic near Infrared Fluorescent Visualization or ENV mode displays the image in a greyscale with green overlay. This fluorescence modality provides an enhanced visual assessment of blood flow, tissue perfusion, and biliary ducts when activated. Similar to 1588 ENV, but with improvements made to the gain, which makes this a great transition mode to use for any customers, familiar with 1588. With the 1688, surgeons are able to operate in ENV mode due to the improvements made.
  • SPY Contrast: SPY Contrast is an incredibly detailed, high-contrast visualization of fluorescence. The image is displayed in black and white to provide a true “north” of perfusion.

IRIS: The Stryker 1688 AIM 4K Platform includes an Infrared Illumination System (IRIS), designed to trans-illuminate and visualize the ureters during laparoscopic surgery.
