About Medrobotics Corporation
Medrobotics has developed a platform of flexible medical robots that enable surgeons to access, visualize, and perform two-handed surgery in hard-to-reach anatomical places through a single-site access. The core technology is a new generation of flexible robotic snakes with advanced vision systems that are able to navigate tortuous paths while providing accessory channels for a wide range of flexible surgical tools. The robots are self-supporting, which means they are able to support their own weight and move within any three-dimensional space without the need for any other structural support.

The Company maintains its corporate headquarters in the Boston area and plans to file for US commercial approval in 2012.
