SRI_International_Taurus_surgical_robotSRI Robotics has long been known for advancing robotics and delivering new technology platforms to the market. Last week they introduced another transformational robotic technology being brought to market by a new company called Verb Surgical Inc. Verb is developing a new robotic surgery platform to integrate technologies such as advanced imaging, data analysis, and machine learning to enable greater efficiency and improved outcomes across a wide range of surgical procedures. 

The project was formed in connection with the strategic collaboration between Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson medical device company, and Verily (formerly Google Life Sciences).

SRI is licensing next-generation robotics technology to Verb Surgical that they believe will impact both the open and minimally invasive surgery markets and ultimately make the benefits of robotic surgery accessible to more patients around the world.

Several SRI ventures have transitioned robotics technology from laboratory to marketplace:

  • Now publicly traded and the global leader in the field of robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery, Intuitive Surgical is based on technology that originated at SRI.
  • Redwood Robotics, a joint venture acquired by Google, was formed by SRI, Meka Robotics and Willow Garage to develop robotic arms that are simple to program, inexpensive and safe to operate near people.
  • Artificial Muscle Inc., an SRI spin-off venture acquired by Parker Hannifin, designs, develops and manufactures actuators and sensors based on novel electroactive polymers.
  • Grabit, Inc., another SRI venture, is commercializing our patented electroadhesion technology in new gripping products that could disrupt the world of automation and material handling.

There’s no doubt that the robotics revolution is leading to new opportunities and innovations. You can expect more exciting developments from SRI Robotics as their multidisciplinary team continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Via SRI International.
