- Products cover applications of surgery inside the MRI bore: Prostate, Brain, Bone, Endo-vascular
- Products are adaptable to other organs or glands
- Products are MRI-compatible for effective imaging with reduced magnetic interference
- Products have compact structure
- Products are modular to allow surgical tools for various interventions to be mounted on the robots
