CMR Surgical builds new global manufacturing facility to meet demands for the Versius Surgical Robotic System

What is the Versius Surgical Robotic System? More Than Just a Robot.

Said to ‘reset expectations of robotic surgery’, the Versius Surgical Robotic System integrates seamlessly into existing workflows, fitting into virtually any operating room setup to increase the likelihood of robotic minimal access surgery (MAS).

Versius is a biomimicking solution for the human arm providing surgeons with dexterity and accuracy, as well as 3D HD vision, easy to adopt instrument control, and a choice of ergonomic working positions. 

Versius also captures meaningful data during procedures, using its wider digital ecosystem to support continuous learning for surgeons.
