About Us

Why:

Arthroscopy is a major part of clinical care. Used to treat over 50 million patients every year. However, the practice is limited and burdened by issues. We feel this is not good enough and through robotics are driven to make a difference.

Who:
We are a team of doctors and engineers dedicated to advancing arthroscopy. We live and breath orthopaedics and specialise in robotics and medical device innovation.

What:
We are committed to addressing the longstanding shortcomings associated with minimally invasive care. With the development of our world first system the V01 – Arthroscopic Surgical Robot, we are building the future that healthcare deserves.

The V01-Arthroscopic Surgical Robot:
The world’s first arthroscopic robot. Designed to meet the full suite of operative requirements and possessing a wide range of revolutionary features.

The platform is equipped with 3 halo mounted high precision robotic arms, boasting 21 degrees of freedom. All motors have onboard controllers facilitating continuous system mapping and advance speed and force control. Each arm has integrated inflow and outflow control, regulating joint temperature, pressure and flow. The system supports both RF ablation and shaving, providing a wide range of surgical actions.

Associated instruments are fully sterile and single use. The arthroscope probe has a soft tip design to improve illumination and decrease the risk of cartilage damage. Graspers, bitters and probes include a low profile intrinsic wrist to unlock full potential of surgical access.

The V01 supports concurrent control through both a user console and VR headset. Designed to place the surgeon in the joint and support their full potential by supporting untethered control with their own hands. Whilst the surgeon is operating other healthcare staff can assist, facilitated by the paired console.
