Cambridge Medical Robotics Forms World’s Smallest Surgical Robot

By , in IT Science on .

From several years, different industries have experienced different invention. The latest invention in the medical industry is ‘the world’s smallest surgical robot’. Cambridge Medical Robotics, a British company is the inventor of the latest invention, and the surgical robot commonly known as ‘Versius’. This breakthrough could cause major changes in the medical industry.

The Versius has several features such as it has the same size as a human arm, unlike the traditional industrial robotic arms it having the four wrist joints which allow more flexibility. The most important benefit of the robot is it mimics a human arm. The chief technology officer at CMR, Mr. Luke Hares said that the Versius gives the opportunity to specialists to work on the patient from any point as they required.

The robot It likewise contains innovation that distinguishes imperviousness to ensure that the appropriate measure of power is utilized when the instrument is inside the patient. The robot can be used to complete a wide range of laparoscopic procedures in which a series of small incisions are made to avoid the need for traditional open surgery. The laparoscopic procedures include nose and throat surgery, colorectal operations, hernia repairs and so on. This helps to reduce complications as well as pain after surgery.

According to the CRM statement, experts providing guidance to the robot by the 3D screen in the operating theatre which is much cheaper, also easy to use. The new innovation will no more expensive. The chief executive of CRM, Mr. Martin Frost said, “not only do they cost £2m each to buy but every procedure costs an extra £3,000 using the robot”. Mr. Luke Hares said, “They used electronics from mobile phones to help the robot think and process information, and gearbox technology designed for the space industry to help it move, it doesn’t tire like a surgeon can”.

The World’s Smallest Surgical Robot will be launched soon, once the surgeons are trained then the robots should be available for procedures on patients by the end of next year.
