SensOR Medical Laboratories Ltd.
SensOR provides a digital sense of touch in minimally invasive and robotic surgery to improve surgical precision and reduce medical error. Medical error is now the third leading cause of death, after only cancer and heart disease, and affects 1.3M people each year and kills 270k in Canada and the US alone. 12% of these errors are caused by applying too much or too little force in surgery. To address this need for force control, SensOR Medical has developed ForceFilm: a patent-pending force-sensing film that can be added-on to any make or model of minimally invasive or robotic surgical instrument without changing the surgical or hospital workflow.
