Robotic Arm to Make Key­hole Surgery Cheap

The Economic Times - - Disruption: Startups & Tech -


Re­searchers have de­vel­oped a robotic arm that can dras­ti­cally cut down the cost of per­form­ing com­plex, min­i­mally in­va­sive pro­ce­dures. The hand-held in­stru­ment de­vel­oped at the Michi­gan Univer­sity pro­vides the same sorts of ben­e­fits as robot-as­sisted surgery, such as greater pre­ci­sion and func­tion­al­ity, but at a lower cost. The tech­nol­ogy gives sur­geons a higher de­gree of dex­ter­ity and in­tu­itive con­trol, said Sho­rya Aw­tar, As­so­ci­ate Pro­fes­sor at Univer­sity of Michi­gan.
