AURORA

In the course of surgical interventions, the so-called "OR circulator" performs various tasks in the non-sterile area of the operating theatre. In clinical practice, however, this often leads to drastic delays in the procedure due to overworking of the personnel. Therefore, the aim of the project is the development of a context-sensitive mechatronic assistance system, which is able to navigate autonomously in the non-sterile area of the operating room and thereby relieves the OR circulator and the rest of the surgical team....

PLAFOKON

The aim of the project is the further development of the minimally invasive surgical platform "Single-Port Overtube" (SPOT) and its seamless integration into clinical procedures. This is to be achieved by a holistic view of the surgical treatment path from allocation to discharge...
