FreeHand breakthrough surgical robot | Sagentia Innovation

FreeHead

Robotic Camera Controller to provide a clear,
steady image, where the surgeon has full and
precise control enabling optimal efficiency in
the operating field.

Our client asked:

Prosurgics needed a partner to rapidly develop a more compact, user
friendly and lower cost robotic surgery device. The timescales to upgrade
their EndoAssist product were ambitious.
The project story:
Sagentia Innovation was responsible for the management and
coordination of all partners and appointed their own team of mechanical,
electronics and software engineers and work commenced immediately.
We worked with the client to optimise the BoM for both disposable and
capital elements and we managed the supply chain and manufacturing
transfer.

Results: deliverables and outcomes

• The development was rapid. Within 7 months the prototypes were
deployed.

• Software was developed and validated to prevailing ISO standards
in only 12 months.

• Full design history records enabled FDA and CE approval
(Jan and Feb 2009).

• ‘Innovation of the Year’ by the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons.

• In 2008 FreeHand was the winner of the ERBI Medtech
Innovation award.

“Sagentia Innovation’s product
development and project
management skills have enabled
us to leverage our IP and know-how in the most effective
manner. The reduction in risk
and faster time-to-market is
critical for a company with the
ambition of Prosurgics.”
Paul Moraviec, CEO, Prosurgics
