Motors with smooth performance for orthopaedic applications

Motors with smooth performance for orthopaedic applications
Surgeons performing small bone orthopaedic surgery need total control over the tools they’re using. Portescap has released three new surgical motors designed for orthopaedic saws, drills and reamers. The compact motors offer controllable, precise torque and have been tested to withstand 1,000+ sterilisation cycles.

Better visibility: Robotic arm supports endoscopic surgeries

Better visibility: Robotic arm supports endoscopic surgeries
With its robotic arm Soloassist II for surgeons in hospitals, the German company AKTORmed from Regensburg makes it easier for surgeons to work with endoscopes. About 15 years ago, the transition from manual to robot-supported guidance of the surgical camera during minimally invasive procedures meant a significant improvement for the surgeon.

Decoding robotic surgery skills

Decoding robotic surgery skills
Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC are looking to technology to help deconstruct expert surgeons' robotic surgery skills so they can create an objective, standardised way to train the next generation of surgeons. Using a data recorder plugged into a robotic surgery system, the team analysed expert and novice surgeons' movements during the reconstruction step of robotic radical prostatectomy, a common surgery for prostate cancer.

K-FLEX: a flexible endoscopic surgical robot

K-FLEX: a flexible endoscopic surgical robot
K-FLEX, a flexible endoscopic surgical robot developed by the KAIST Future Medical Robotics Research Center, opens a new chapter for minimally invasive robot-assisted surgery with its precision control of 3.7mm diameter robotic arms. The two arms, placing at the end of flexible endoscopes, highlight impeccable precision control and robust mini-joint design technologies. While cruising through the complicated inner body pliably, it carries out procedures on the spot with its robotic arms.

The latest approach to cardiac surgery

The latest approach to cardiac surgery
Second-year medical student Kevin Cyr is part of a team of Stanford researchers investigating new ways to survey electricity in the heart. The research has led to the development of cardiac surgical devices that could one day help patients who suffer from a common heart ailment. “I’m using 3D-printed tools to design cardiac-mapping catheters, devices used by surgeons to map the electrical activity of the heart and find disturbances,” says Cyr.

Wireless brain implant to enable latest therapies

Wireless brain implant to enable latest therapies
Small, wireless and networked describes more than the latest household gadget. At Draper, medical implants are slimming down and getting connected, too. Draper’s latest system is tiny in size, but is poised to make a big impact in treating disease through its networked abilities. A driving factor in the new implant design is the growing awareness that disease often involves complex interactions between multiple systems in the body.

Introducing machine-vision image guided procedure for cranial surgery

Introducing machine-vision image guided procedure for cranial surgery
7D Surgical has announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its Cranial Module. This achievement is a crucial step in the commercial launch of 7D Surgical’s innovative Machine-vision Image Guided Surgery (MvIGS) system for cranial surgery throughout the United States. The 7D Surgical System utilises completely new camera-based technology and machine vision algorithms to eliminate the long-standing frustrations with legacy surgical navigational platforms.
