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.

 

Surgical Robotics Challenges

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:

  1. Haptic feedback: the physical sensation humans receive through our sense of touch, allowing the replication of sensorial feedback
  2. Reliability: constant maintenance and unplanned downtime
  3. 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

 

 

Boston Engineering's Solution

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.

Control 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.
