Delivery of MRI-Compatible Pediatric Surgery Robot (PSR) to the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)
Anviv Mechatronics Inc. (AMI) has completed the development of an MRI-Compatible Pediatric Surgery Robot (PSR). The PSR is targeted to be a new surgical robot for MRI-guided paediatric bone biopsy. The PSR system is modular, reconfigurable and capable of fitting into an MRI environment. The re-configurability can provide a means of finding the best possible configuration for specific bone biopsy tasks. The robot has six joint-modules and auxiliary technology (surgical tool, control station and arch device) and it can be adapted for operation in 3T MRI scanners. The equipment was delivered to the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in May 2014.
