In great Britain developed the smallest robot surgeon

British engineers from CMR, specializing in the production of medical equipment, announced that it has completed the development of an inexpensive, compact and practical robot that can compete with its big «relatives» and is designed to perform delicate operations.

The developers of the company said that their new robot is called Versius, its dimensions are barely above 60 by 60 inches, and the price is almost two times lower compared to similar devices.

The Robot will be able to conduct operations under which the patient is not required to make big cuts, and need only small holes with a diameter up to one centimeter. Such operations also require delicacy, so the robot is very flexible — the manipulator according to its properties very similar to the human arm, and all actions of the robot can be tracked in three-dimensional display will be connected to Versius. This allows the surgeon-operator to do everything faster and more efficiently.

A working prototype miniature robot surgeon will be available next year. Some time it will need to tested and certified, which presumably will last until the end of 2018.
