The crossroads where robotics and AI meet

Artificial intelligence harbors vast potential for medical applications. It can help detect and treat diseases at an early turn. Many new opportunities are also emerging in connection with robotics, for example, in the operating room. Smart assistance systems are finding their way into the surgical workflow. Image recognition and processing algorithms can serve to analyze the surgeon’s actions during operations, detect errors as they occur, and even prevent mistakes. A use case involving minimally invasive surgery shows that these systems can track objects as well as actors in real time.

Smart robotics and assistance systems From consulting and development to certification

Our efforts to develop medical and service robots, assistance systems, and other robotic systems date back to 1996. Drawing on this wealth of experience and expertise, we can quickly assess your ideas and put your vision for smart robots into practice. And our top priority has always been and will always be patient and user safety.

Medical robotics: The journey from inceptive idea to finished product

The use of robotic systems in healthcare will continue to expand in the years ahead, paving the way for groundbreaking new opportunities in medical technology that will benefit both medical practitioners and patients. This whitepaper provides an overview of the key requirements and development steps from the evaluation of the product idea to the CE mark.
