Abstract of the Event:

The Eindhoven region has a rich history in precision engineering with the world’s top firms having started up and located . In the field of medical robotics, the experiences from high tecg precision industrial motion systems are being used successfully at our research labs at TU/e and its spin off Medical Robotics Technologies. Examples are Preceyes – the world’s first eye surgical robot; Microsure – a micro surgical instrument for the use in reconstructive surgery. For the skull base we are developing an autonomous bone robot, and for brain surgery a deep brain high precision position instrument. In the care sector, the developments are to enable robotics for use in homes, hospitals and senior homes. For India, our plans are to work with best surgeons and hospitals to enable affordable medical robots.
