Dexter: the new flexible OR robot

Dear Sir or Madam,

Surgical robotic systems are often large, expensive and above all: inflexible. This is set to change with the Dexter surgical robot. It allows surgeons to switch between robotic and endoscopic surgery during the operation, for example if an emergency arises during the procedure.

Find out what else Dexter can do and how it can benefit hospitals in our interview "OR robotics: flexible on-demand robotics with Dexter".

Enjoy reading!

Surgical robotics is precise and reduces the workload of surgeons. However, it is not always as flexible as humans. Dexter, a surgical robot that recently received CE certification, could revolutionize how surgery is performed in certain cases. Not only is it smaller and less expensive than other systems, it also allows switching between robotics and laparoscopy.
