#1 Flexible Intralumenal Robotics

Overview

This novel catheter-based technology allows precise remote manipulations within the intra-luminal space with precision and reproducibility that surpasses human capabilities. This technology is likely to have applications in urology, cardiology, cardiac surgery, and other specialties.
 
Increasing clinical experience has been acquired for this truly cutting-edge device technology in the past year, particularly in interventional cardiology. It has proven especially useful in electrophysiology applications to assist in catheter positioning during ablation procedures; however, this technology holds great promise for wide-ranging catheter-based technologies such as endovascular grafting procedures.

Where Are They Now

A novel catheter-based technology has been developed that allows precise remote manipulations within the intra-luminal space with precision and reproducibility that surpasses human capabilities. This technology is likely to have applications in urology, cardiology, cardiac surgery, and other specialties.

Increasing clinical experience has been acquired for this truly cutting-edge device technology, particularly in intervention cardiology. It has been proven especially useful in electrophysiology applications to assist in catheter positioning during ablation procedures. However, this technology holds great promise for wide-ranging catheter-based technologies such as endovascular grafting procedures. This robotics system won FDA approval in 2012 after clinical trials resulted in a 97.6% success rate for angioplasty procedures. Current device development is focused on improving precision, ergonomics, and reducing occupational radiation exposure and in 2015, clinical trials are beginning to use this robotic device for new indications in cardiology. In a 2017 forecast, the medical robotic systems market revenue is expected to reach USD 17.89 billion by 2022.
