The creation of IP in the surgical robotics space is enhancing surgical procedures with accurate results, making way for less invasive surgical techniques.
FREMONT, CA: "At this time, we're recognizing that several surgical workflow systems have been introduced and new robots are entering the space in various subspecialties like general surgery, orthopedic surgery and ENT. This new patent issuance ensures that ultimately surgeons who utilize robots are the best teacher for these systems to help improve surgical workflow," says Justin Esterberg, CEO of NavLab. A Seattle-based life sciences consultancy and incubator, IntuitiveX has collaborated with NavLab to create more IP in the surgical robotics space. NavLab is a portfolio company of IntuitiveX that has built an extensive IP portfolio comprising of new surgical robotics patents.
With John Cronin's support, NavLab has received another patent issuance that has extensive claims on how surgical robots will learn via ML and neural networks. These claims are the patented key to how surgeons will guide the robot at every step of any surgical procedure.
Surgical robots have enhanced surgical procedures by allowing precise and reproducible results for patients, empowering less invasive surgical techniques. The surgical workflow, while using a robot, involves software for planning and performing parts of a surgical procedure. The advanced software improves safety, efficiency, and outcomes for patients using algorithms, neural networks, and ML.
