What is a neurosurgeon’s worst enemy ? Natural tremor of course… So the principle is simple. What if we could perform at the operating room with natural tremor eliminated ? Our moves would be delicate, accurate and safer. This principle lies behind NeuroArm ©, the first image-guided neurosurgical robot. NeuroArm © project started in 2001 by a collaboration of the University of Calgary at Canada and robot expert companies. The inventor is Dr G. Sutherland and promises us a tremor-free world at the operating room. NeuroArm © utilizes special construction materials since it operates in collaboration with an MRI scanner and 2 robotic arms that are operated in a master/slave mode from a neurosurgeon at a remote room.

Numerous awards and publications encircle a surgeons utmost dream, the elimination of natural hand tremor. This era is much closer today than we think…
