Next-generation surgical robotics to set a new standard of care in orthopaedic surgery

Project description

Advanced robotics for optimised orthopaedic surgery

The aging of the population has increased the demand for orthopaedic surgery. However, orthopaedic surgical techniques have remained unchanged for decades, resulting in procedures without technological assistance in 95 % of cases. Surgical procedures depend on the experience of the surgeon and are cumbersome and costly. Moreover, conventional instrumentation prevents data collection from the operating room (OR). The EIC-funded Ganymed project proposes the first compact, ergonomic, intuitive, and cost-effective robotic device, which supports surgeons to perform more precise and safer joint-replacement procedures. The robot introduces computer vision-driven intelligence and perception into the OR, allowing contactless localisation of the patient’s anatomy and opening the way for a data-driven OR.
