Medical Robotics for Minimally Invasive Procedures

Medical robots are being increasingly utilized for surgical procedures, diagnostics, image-guided interventions and drug delivery. Robotically-assisted medical devices are helping clinicians safely perform delicate, complex procedures with accuracy, flexibility and reliability. Patients recover faster, with less pain, and fewer complications.

RTI is partnering with the leading medical robotics companies to deliver next-generation systems that integrate: 

  • Advanced robotics, sensors, and instrumentation
  • Visualization, AI, AR/VR integration
  • Surgical autonomy
  • Remote surgery and monitoring
  • Digital surgery and ecosystem integration

RTI – Solving the Challenges of Robotically-Assisted Systems with Connext® DDS:

Reliability and Safety/Security: Medical robots are required to perform safely and reliably while meeting demanding performance, functional and security requirements. 

  • Meets demanding low-latency and real-time communication requirements
  • Decoupled architecture enables safety and security design
  • Extensive features to enable secure communications and data accessibility across devices
  • Proven safety-critical communication framework in 1,000s of distributed and autonomous systems
Faster and more efficient software development lifecycles: Medical Robotics programs need to meet business objectives in a rapidly growing market with many new competitors. Development resources need to be utilized efficiently to focus on the design of value-add features:

  • Connext data model supports parallel team development and integration
  • Allows teams to focus on applications over infrastructure – reducing development and software maintenance costs
  • Comprehensive support, tools, services
Flexible and interoperable systems: To fully realize the benefits of robotics platforms, these systems and accessories must support and adapt to new use cases, technologies, and data integrations from multiple sources: 

  • Data-centric and modular architecture enables scalability and extensibility
  • Cross-platform support, transparent to application software 
  • Device mobility and system access across networks and hospital infrastructure
Increased regulatory requirements for cybersecurity: Manufacturers need the expertise and resources to expedite regulatory approval by ensuring their systems meet the evolving and comprehensive standards from regulatory agencies world-wide: 

  • Zero-trust security model supports “deny-by-default” regulatory guidance
  • Security by design for connected ecosystem
  • Expert security assessment, consulting and training services
