SpineGuard announces its inclusion as consortium member
SpineGuard announces its inclusion as consortium member of FAROS. Upgraded status from provider of the DSG guidance technology for the surgical robot to a full-fledged member of the consortium.
Emmanuel Vander Poorten, associate professor at KU Leuven’s Robot-Assisted Surgery group and coordinator of the FAROS project:
“We are delighted to welcome SpineGuard in the heart of our consortium. SpineGuard has been our major inspiration to start with, offering a living example of how added value can be created by deeply integrated sensing right into surgical tools. The importance of including a partner with such industrial experience and proven excellence into FAROS, a project that is all about real-time multi-modal sensing and how to take advantage of it through robotics, can hardly be overestimated. This injection of expertise and market-orientation significantly boosts our expectations to successfully translate FAROS’ core technologies to the market. We are enthusiastic to be able to work with the team of Stéphane Bette and Thibault Chandanson as we seek to establish a shorter-term and stronger impact in the field. Through this cooperation we can seriously push to raise the level of accuracy and safety in today’s spine surgery.”
