Industry collaboration to deliver new generation robots


13 March, 2008  

Prosurgics and Adept Technology have announced that they are to collaborate in building a new generation of surgical robotic systems.

Together the companies aim to create a range of surgical robotics systems for soft-tissue surgical procedures such as cardiac and prostate surgery, which will be best in class and affordable.

Surgical robots are now performing more than 50% of all prostatectomies in the US, with proven improvements in patient outcomes, while also delivering economic benefit.

Adept CEO Rob Bucher said: “The surgical robotics market requires very high precision products with no room for error. Our goal in working with Prosurgics is to create technology platforms that can be used in a range of surgical systems thereby lowering these systems’ total cost of ownership and expanding the reach of our technology throughout the surgical market.”

UK-based Prosurgics is a leading manufacturer of image-guided surgical robots. Adept Technology are a major industrial robot manufacturer based in California.
