Research and Development
All Prosurgics’ products are designed and developed in-house by our team of development engineers. The development team includes specialists in robotics, mechanical design, electronic engineering and software. One particular skill of this team is to be able to translate surgeons’ requirements into robust engineering solutions. For this reason, members of the team make regular visits to hospital operating rooms and spend time observing and talking to surgeons. Another very important special expertise is the design of safety-critical equipment, particularly in the area of software.

Prosurgics has been instrumental in setting the standard for medical robot safety, and our development process includes documentation and testing to ensure that risks in design and use are minimised, while safety-monitoring processes detect any potential hazards and take preventive action.

Collaborative Development Projects
Prosurgics participates in national and international collaborative R&D projects with key universities and research groups around the world. These studies are normally competitively funded by grant-awarding bodies such as the European Commission and national governments. Prosurgics selects projects which refresh and extend its skill base, and put it in touch with leading researchers in related sectors such as sensor technology, image processing, telematics and IT infrastructure.

Where new product development requires specialist clinical or technology skills, Prosurgics works with leading universities to undertake a joint development. Usually the university receives the rights to continue using the development in future research and publish the results (where these are not commercially sensitive), while Prosurgics retains the exclusive rights to use the development in its products.

A particular area where Prosurgics works closely with university hospitals is in clinical evaluation of new products and applications. We establish reference centres in leading hospitals where we work with surgeons to develop techniques for robotic surgery, and carry out evidence-based evaluations of the benefits of using robots in new procedures. These lead to publications in medical conferences and journals that establish the scientific basis for the claims we make about the clinical and economic benefits of our surgical robots.

Prosurgics has ongoing or recent collaborations with the following universities:

Imperial College, London, UK
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA
Manchester University, UK
Nottingham University, UK
Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble, France
Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium
University of Oslo, Norway
