Sagentia congratulates Medrobotics on two wins at the Medical Design Excellence Awards
Medrobotics won Best in Show and was awarded Gold in the Surgical Equipment Instruments and Supplies category at the 2016 Medical Design Excellence Awards for their Flex® Robotic System. Sagentia was a key science and technology collaboration partner on the project, assisting in the design and development of this ground-breaking advance in surgical robotics.
The Medical Design Excellence Awards competition is the medtech industry's premier awards program recognizing achievements in medical product design and engineering that improve the quality of healthcare delivery and accessibility. Each year, a panel of jurors comprised of designers, engineers, and clinicians awards bronze, silver, gold, and best-in-show honors to the most innovative products on the market in nine categories.
The Flex® Robotic System allows surgeons to navigate around anatomy with a flexible robotic scope equipped with high-definition vision; once positioned, the scope becomes rigid and allows the surgeon to operate with flexible instruments in hard-to-reach, confined spaces.
Sagentia is a leader in the field of surgical robotics having worked on over 100 separate projects for clients around the world. With skills including electromechanical design, embedded systems, control theory, software, human factors and clinical application, Sagentia is well placed to develop and integrate highly complex medical robotic systems.
