OrbSurgical has consolidated collaboration with Sullivan Machining, Calgary AB, for the build of a unique haptic device. The technology forms the state-of-the-art human-machine interface, for the neuroArmPLUS remote workstation.
Towards fulfilling its Build in (Calgary - Alberta) Canada initiative, OrbSurgical is actively formalizing partnerships with various corporations, institutions, bodies and individuals locally and across the globe.
OrbSurgical receives funding support from NRC-IRAP towards the build of the neuroArmPLUS surgical robotic system (November 2019). The funding approved for three years, will support recruitment of talented engineers and staff, as well as contractors towards completion of the robotic system.
