SensOR

SensOR provides a virtual sense of touch in minimally invasive and robotic surgery to improve surgical precision and reduce medical error. This virtual sense of touch is provided by ForceFilm: a patent-pending force-sensing film that can be added-on to any make or model of minimally invasive or robotic surgical instrument.  ForceFilm works by wireless relay all the forces applied to tissue onto the surgeon's display that they would be looking at anyway without changing the existing surgical or hospital workflow.  The improved precision can save up to $148 per procedure at only a $17 cost.
