CUREXO Corp., a medical robot specialist company, developed a spinal surgery robot – CUVIS-spine. CUVIS-spine has acquired FDA (US) license.
Spinal surgery robot ‘CUVIS-spine’ is a next-gen spinal surgery robot that guides the insertion of a pedicle screw according to the surgery plan. It uses a high precision robot arm, wireless one-step navigation based on a real-time OTS sensor to provide precise, safe and faster surgery. Also, it minimizes the filming and reduces the radiation exposure of both patients and medical staff.
Both 2-dimensional filming (C-arm) and 3-dimensional filming (O-arm) are applicable with this solution which provides expandability. Its wireless one-step navigation and the robot system allows multiple steps (Needle, K-wire, Dilation, Tapping) of traditional surgery to be performed with one surgery tool, reducing surgery duration. The patience recovery time will be quicker as it allows Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS).
Jae-Joon Lee, CEO, CUREXO, said: “The spinal surgery robot ‘CUVIS-spine’ that we have developed and manufactured with our technology has acquired FDA (US)’s licensing. It is the 3rd license that we have acquired, followed by Korea and Europe, and now we can sell our solution in all countries including, the US, which is the biggest medical market.”
Lee added: “CUREXO plans to focus on our medical robots sales, including ‘CUVIS-joint’, ‘CUVIS-spine’ and ‘Morning Walk’ to not only the Korean market but also to advanced medical markets, such as the US and Europe.”
