Curexo introduced its quick and accurate spinal surgery robot system CUVIS-spine at the 35th International Medical Equipment & Hospital Equipment Exhibition (KIMES 2019) that runs Mar. 14-17 in COEX.
CUVIS-spine is a spinal surgery robot system that guides and supports the pedicle screw to the correct position. Based on high-precision robotic arm, one-step surgical tool, and real-time location sensor, it is possible to make operation easier and more precise compared to conventional manual surgery by conducting the surgery with the navigation software. In addition, real-time patient position monitoring can be used to correct the surgery plan in real time, and it can help reduce the radiation exposure for both the patient and the medical staff because only two or three images are needed for operation.
A staff at Curexo said, "We are also developing CUVIS-joint, a surgical robot system that helps the artificial joints to be inserted more precisely during artificial joint surgery, and we are aiming to release it in 2020."
