Nuclear Research and Surgery

A JRC invention initially stemming from its research in the nuclear sector will soon be used by hospitals for minimally-invasive robotic surgery. TELELAP Advanced Laparoscopy through Force refleCTion,” is an advanced multi-port robotic system that will empower surgeons with new technologies such as eye-tracking and haptics, allowing them eye-control of the camera and touch sensation during surgery. Hospitals will be able use the most advanced technology while running at low operational costs, as the system can use current surgical instruments.
