Rob Surgical was founded in 2012 as a spin-off of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC). The company is focused on the design and development of new robotic systems with the aim of universalising high-precision surgery, adapting to the needs of the patient and surgeon.
The value proposition is based on three pillars: high precision and safety that benefits the patient, superior usability for the surgeon and a significant reduction in the total cost per surgery. This benefits hospitals as it does not require a dedicated operating theatre, requires fewer staff, no prior training and supports hybrid surgeries.
Rob Surgical’s differentiating value is the possibility of performing hybrid surgeries, alternating manual manoeuvres and high-precision robot-assisted manoeuvres. This is thanks to the use of the same instruments and flexible robotics that allows the robot to intervene only in the most delicate parts, thus reducing the time and cost of each intervention.
Rob Surgical’s system improves on current robotics and offers an open, flexible platform consisting of a column of four arms that allow the movements of surgical instruments to be controlled with sub-millimetre precision
The Bitrack surgical robot is the first open robotic platform designed to improve the efficiency of today’s minimally invasive surgery through unique technology, improved usability, and cost reduction per surgery.
