EndoMaster: A Surgical Robot’s Journey from the Research Lab to the Operating Theatre​

I will share my experiences in developing a novel flexible robotic system that removes gastric and colon tumours using natural orifices as points of access. I will discuss the technical and medical challenges faced to push the research to successfully test the robot on human subjects. Thereafter, a company (EndoMaster) was incorporated to commercialise the product. The challenges faced in the translation of the robotic technology to be used in a clinical setting were entirely different from the research phase. By sharing my experiences, I hope to inspire more researchers to translate their research and inventions to actual useful products.
