Surgical Robotic Technology

Robotic surgery is a surgical procedure that is done using robotic systems. This technology was developed to overcome the limitations of pre-existing minimally-invasive surgical procedures and to enhance the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgery. For almost three decades, we’ve designed, developed, and optimized surgical devices and technologies the medical community relies on to save lives, enrich quality of life, and reduce costs to the healthcare system.


At Boston Engineering, we’re pioneering the next frontier in surgical robotics. Our cutting-edge solutions empower surgical device companies to revolutionize healthcare by offering advanced, precise, and innovative technologies. With our expertise and forward-thinking approach, we’re transforming the landscape of surgical robotics, fostering innovation, and driving growth for companies in the medical device industry.


Challenges of Surgical Robotics

Although surgical robots are providing numerous benefits for both patients and doctors, the technology is proving to have some limitations in its adoption. Common challenges in this tech adoption include:

Low Haptic Feedback

The physical sensation humans receive through our sense of touch, allowing the replication of sensorial feedback.

Reliability Issues

Constant maintenance and unplanned downtime not only causes reliability risks due to safety and accuracy issues but can cost organizations up to $700 per minute!

Complex and Long Training

Steep learning curves and extensive training is required to get comfortable with the absence/significant reduction of tactile cues and kinesthetic signals.


Digital Solutions

Real-time monitoring with the Internet of Things (IoT) can limit downtime as progressing issues can be caught and fixed before a machine is out of service. Augmented Reality (AR) can provide not only maintenance instructions and assistance but also training opportunities.

Industrial Design & Product Redesign

Our industrial design methodology goes deeper than product aesthetics to cover internal technology and manufacturability (DFX). We combine form, function, and features through our system-level approach to product innovation. We work on products with project engineering and industrial design together.

Embedded Systems & Sensors

Our control systems solutions drive new levels of precision, control, and performance. Boston Engineering develops custom drives, algorithms, and application code including sensored control.
