The Endoscope Guidance Robot is a compact robot specialized for the application of holding an endoscope during transnasal interventions. Until now, surgeons mostly have to guide the endoscope themselves for seeing the operation area during transnasal interventions. This task occupies one of their hands completely, constraining surgical working conditions. The Endoscope Guidance Robot takes over this task, so that the surgeon has one more hand at free disposal.
The Endoscope Guidance Robot is the winner of the European Product Design Award Gold 2019
