Virtual Incision MIRA Surgical Robotic System

Unlike today’s robots that reach into the body from outside the patient, Virtual Incision’s MIRA Surgical Robotic Platform features a small, self-contained surgical device that is inserted through a single midline umbilical incision in the patient’s abdomen. Virtual Incision’s technology is designed to enable complex multi-quadrant abdominal surgeries utilizing existing tools and techniques familiar to surgeons, and does not require a dedicated operating room or specialized infrastructure. Because of its much smaller size, the robot is expected to be significantly less expensive than existing robotic alternatives for laparoscopic surgery. The MIRA Surgical Robotic Platform is an investigational device that is not available for sale in the United States.
