Robot surgery, computer-assisted surgery, and robotically-assisted surgery are some of the terms used to refer to today’s advanced robotic surgical tools that allow surgeons to perform many types of complex procedures with higher precision, flexibility, control and less invasively than is possible with conventional surgical techniques. Robotic surgery is usually considered to be minimally invasive surgery where procedures are performed through tiny incisions in the body.
Allied Motion is a leading supplier of motion control products employed in surgical robot systems. Our HT and Megaflux direct drive torque motors, in particular, are a preferred choice by surgical robot manufacturers for use in their robots. More than a dozen of these high performance brushless torque motors may be used in a single robot.
