Taiwanese startup’s mind surgical robotic will get cleared in Europe

Brain Navi Biotechnology, a Taiwan-based startup that creates navigation robots, has secured a CE mark for its robotic-assisted surgical robotic for mind surgical procedure.


Founded in 2015, Brain Navi primarily designs and develops medical gadgets that may help surgeons throughout medico-surgical interventions.

One of its merchandise, the NaoTrac, is supplied with a high-precision navigation system known as Surface Mapping Auto-Registration Technology or SMART. The platform combines machine imaginative and prescient, robotic know-how, and algorithms to realize real-time imaging, exact surgical procedure, and minimally invasive outcomes throughout surgical procedure. It permits the robotic know-how to recognise surgical devices inside seconds and to conduct affected person registration via a non-contact machine imaginative and prescient course of.


Dr Jerry Chen, CEO of Brain Navi Biotechnology famous that lengthy surgical procedure occasions, excessive focus, and precision in procedures, which all require a clinician’s bodily endurance, can have an effect on a neurosurgeon’s efficiency. This is the place NaoTrac comes because it helps minimize anaesthesia time and help in enhancing a affected person’s well-being via offering much less invasive interventions.

According to the corporate’s press assertion, the navigation robotic serves as an assistant to surgeons whereas serving to them plan for surgical procedure. During pre-operating planning, customers can select a surgical procedure pathway utilizing 3D imaginative and prescient to exactly spot anatomical areas, in addition to monitor the robotic throughout the complete process. 

Brain Navi talked about that it’s within the technique of submitting necessities for a US Food and Drugs Administration clearance. 


Singaporean AI medical machine maker NDR Medical Technology, whose AI robotic intervention machine has been cleared in Europe, has just lately partnered with South Korea-based regenerative medication agency CGBIO to conduct medical research for its ANT-X (automated needle focusing on with x-ray) system. The machine combines AI and medical imaging to facilitate protected and correct needle punctures to human organs. 

The British medical know-how firm Smith+Nephew has just lately rolled out in New Zealand, Australia, and India its US FDA-approved robotics platform known as the CORI Surgical System. Its product is a handheld robotics machine for unicompartmental and whole knee arthroplasties. 

Meanwhile, Brain Navi has just lately partnered with the Chenggong University of Taiwan for a liver ablation navigation challenge the place its SMART platform goes to be utilized for early most cancers therapy. 


“Robotics and artificial intelligence are the future of healthcare with remarkable potential to not only advance patient care but increase access to these benefits. It [is] essential to increase the degree of accuracy of surgery,” stated Dr Shinn-Zong Lin, superintendent of Hualien Tzu-Chi Medical Center and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

He additionally stated that the know-how behind the Brain Navi NaoTrac may also “be used in various medical fields, such as immunotherapy, cell transplant, microchip implantation, etc., where a high degree of accuracy is required”. It doesn’t solely has the power to execute tumour resection but in addition has the “potential to collaborate within these fields,” Dr Lin claimed.
