MEDUSA - Single Port Continuum Robot System

We are leveraging continuum robotics to create a flexible variable stiffness endoport for laparoscopic single-site surgery. The endoport concept is a flexible manipulator realized as a two-segment tendon-actuated continuum robot capable of stiffening its structure through a layer jamming sheath. Three working channels offer application and quick exchange of flexible surgical tools, either manual or robotic as well as endoscopes.
