Microbot Medical designs, develops, and commercializes microrobotics-assisted medical equipment designed to treat cerebrospinal fluid and gastrointestinal disorders.
The companyâ€™s ViRob is an autonomous crawling microrobot that is controlled by remotely applied electromagnetic fields and ideal for performing minimally invasive medical procedures. TipCAT is a flexible, self-propelled, semi-disposable endoscope suitable for navigating and crawling through a natural tubular lumen. Based on the ViRob technology, the Microbot SCS device is a robotic system designed to prevent occlusions in the proximal cerebrospinal fluid shunt system.
In August 2016, U.S.-based StemCells merged with Microbot Medical. In May 2018, the company announced its acquisition of a novel, patent-protected technology from CardioSert. Microbot Medical is now the owner of this technology, including all research and development information, technical know-how, and intellectual property.
Microbot Medicalâ€™s Liberty is a fully disposable robotic system for use in neurovascular, cardiovascular, and peripheral vascular procedures.
