Where the RoboticScope is already Available

The microsurgical revolution is already underway in hospitals across over 20 countries, with more joining the movement every day.

RoboticScope – A True Digital Surgical Microscope

The RoboticScope combines the concept of a traditional microscope with the advantages of a completely new digital system. We detach surgeons from the microscope with the RoboticScope and our Head-Mounted Display (HMD). This releases them from the constraints of a typical microscope and gives back total freedom in posture, position, and perspective to the surgeons.

The new and innovative solution for surgical visualization with our robotic microscope: RoboticScope

”The essential innovation of the technology is that it is possible to navigate intuitively and quickly without using the hands, thus making fine microsurgical procedures more flexible, faster, and safer.
