Applied Dexterity

Launched: 

2014

Sector: 

Applied Dexterity’s goal is to advance the field of robotically assisted surgery by creating a research surgical robot that fosters collaboration. Researchers can program and modify the RAVENTM system but it serves as a standard platform so that they can share their software and improvements. RAVEN is designed to be an extensible, robust, and programmable research tool to allow researchers in engineering, surgery, and computer science to experiment, innovate, and collaborate.
