A medical exhibition organised in Oradea for the first time as part of the SSIMA International Medical Technology Conference included on Wednesday the offerings of five innovative start-ups, such as the world’s most advanced surgical robot Versius, brought from the UK by Cambridge Medical Robots (CMR) and also an ecosystem for disinfection and prevention of nosocomial diseases made by a resident of Oradea, according to Agerpres.
According to the representatives of the CMR company, the Versius surgical robot is much more flexible than other robotic systems (Da Vinci, for example) and allows operations performed by the doctor both standing and sitting.
„It is the only robotic surgery system in the world that allows the doctor to be either sitting or standing when operating. Versius keeps the robotic surgery part, that is visibility, 3D, 10x image magnification, but the articulation part is much more flexible, with many more degrees of articulation, in seven points. Currently, there is still no such surgical robot operating in Romania,” said an official representative.
Worldwide, there are currently 140 Versius robots that already perform 7,000 surgical procedures. It sells for an estimated price of around 1.5 million euros.
The section dedicated to industry day at the Oradea County Hospital also provided information on a revolutionary product of the Oradea company Hertzmed, while another company presented an IT product for automatic reports application transcribing the doctor’s instructions through voice recognition, and another one presented radiotherapy innovations.
The company Hertzmed of Oradea came, for the first time, with an integrated ecosystem for the disinfection of rooms, based on blockchain, which allows complete transparency and traceability of disinfection activities. They offer a device and software infrastructure that will digitalise the decontamination processes in healthcare facilities, schools, kindergartens, medical centres, hotels, spas, restaurants, means of transport, etc. Their purpose is to prevent nosocomial illnesses.
