High-precision robots as medical and surgical assistants

Helpful hands redefined: What has long been standard practice in industry is now finding new applications in the field of medicine. Medical robots are on the advance, not only in the production of drugs but also in the operating theater. If you, as a medical equipment manufacturer, require high-precision, quiet and flexible robots that also meet all the criteria for sterile surgical conditions, look no further than the Stäubli range. Easy to clean, with minimal particle emissions and high precision, they relieve doctors of some of the strain they are under while performing operations that demand their full concentration. Robots are also contributing to the development of innovative surgical techniques.
