Quanser reps, Michael Armata and Paul Gilbert, demonstrate the efficacy of robot arms designed to improve techniques for minimally-invasive surgery. Plus, they show their "Rehab Robot," a tool to help stroke victims regain their fine motor skills. Digital Journal toured the Markham, Ont., Quanser headquarters to see how haptic augmented robotic surgery can supplement the skills of human surgeons.

A surgical robotic system developed by a team led by Dr. Garnette Sutherland, a Calgary Health Region neurosurgeon and professor of neurosurgery in the University of Calgary Faculty of Medicine. neuroArm is the world's first MRI-compatible surgical robot capable of both microsurgery and image guided biopsy. The surgical robotic system is controlled by a surgeon from a computer workstation, working in conjunction with intraoperative MR (magnetic resonance) imaging. Dr. Sutherland developed the intraoperative MRI machine with Winnipeg-based IMRIS Inc. The technology allows a high field MRI scanner to move in to the operating room on demand, providing imaging during the surgical procedure without compromising patient safety<br /> <a href="http://www.medicine.ucalgary.ca/">http://www.medicine.ucalgary.ca/</a>
