Our Steerable Grasper for laparoscopic surgeries has been selected for the Amazing Technology Symposium as one of the ten disruptive technologies in laparoscopy at the European Association of Endoscopic Surgery conference in London! The EAES is a growing and dynamic organization that continues to play a leading role in the field of endoscopic surgery.
Surge-on’s Steerable Grasper was used during a research study at the Delft University of Technology and Academisch Medisch Centrum to test two aspects. First, to test the ease of use for the surgeon during complex 3D manipulation tasks and second, to test the Steerable Grasper’s cleaning and sterilization aspects at the sterilization department. The results of this research will be presented at the EAES conference on May 30th 2018. In the following video you can see an example of the tests performed with the Steerable Grasper.
