Gentle, smooth motions combined with an ultra-steady view
A new form of endoscopic surgery — manipulation by the surgeon
EMARO is the world’s first pneumatically driven endoscope manipulator robot. When the surgeon equipped with the head sensor leans his head to the forward, backward, or side, the robot will sense the movement and smoothly control the endoscope by pneumatic pressure. This technology will enable the surgeon to obtain desired images with no camera shake and no need for scopist and to perform the surgery more accurately.
EMARO is the world’s first pneumatically driven endoscope manipulator robot.
It uses pneumatic control to achieve gentle, smooth movements.
The user operates the robot in conjunction with a head sensor attached to the head to manipulate the endoscope.
By flipping the “manual” switch, the operator can carry out intuitive, manual operations as needed.
EMARO firmly maintains its current position when stopped, preventing blurring of the endoscopic image.
