CMR Surgical raised £195 million, or about $240 million U.S., to fully fund the worldwide commercialization of its modular surgical robotics system.
CMR Surgical unveiled its modular robotic surgery platform for minimally invasive procedures after raising $100 million earlier this summer.
The series B equips CMR to start promoting portable, modular Versius devices intended to make robotic surgery routine.
With a rare new entrant, the minimally invasive robotic surgery arena may be ripe for a shake-up in 2018.
Genomics, bioelectronics and artificial intelligence are clear themes among FierceMedTech's 2017 Fierce 15 companies.
Rather than sell large robots for millions of dollars, Cambridge Medical Robotics provides small, modular robotic arms as a service. In doing so, the startup thinks it can expand use of robots beyond difficult procedures and make them as routine a part of operating rooms as scalpels and lights.
When we were compiling this year’s crop of Fierce 15 companies, some clear themes stood out. Genomics. Bioelectronics. Artificial intelligence. But while multiple companies are working to improve the use of these technologies, there runs a deeper current: making care more accessible.
