The Doctor Will See You Now - Exploring the Future of Surgical Robots

There have been talks of surgical robots since as early as 1985. While the medical sector has taken significant steps since then to implement such technology, major barriers are still evident.

Surgical Robots and Their Rapid Adoption in Minimally Invasive Surgeries

By using robot arms controlled through a computer, surgeons are now able to perform small incision surgeries that are minimally invasive and offer an improved level of precision.

Robots to Perform Spinal Surgery With Pinpoint Accuracy

This technology has the potential to minimise those risks by performing a key part of the operation with accuracy which cannot be achieved by a human hand.

What's Driving Investments in Surgical Robots?

Ideally, hospitals and clinics would be able to justify the cost of a new robot based on scientific studies on its effectiveness and business cases on its usability. But for new platforms, these are very scarce.

How Robots Are Changing the Way We Do Surgery

As we see more widespread acceptance for robots in general, we'll likely see even more automation in health care - but some of it is already here.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series: High Precision Stages with Built-in Controllers and Linear Encoders

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
