DeviceTalks Tuesday Interview with Vicarous Surgical

Recently, Cirtronics sponsored a live, DeviceTalks Weekly interview between WTWH’s Tom Salemi, and Vicarious Surgical’s CEO and Co-Founder, Adam Sachs talking about Surgical Robotics. It’s now been released as a podcast including a great new segment with Robert Kraal, VP and GM Connected Health at Zimmer Biomet talking about the state of the art use of Edge Computing in MedTech.

Interwoven with sections that provide an overview of recent MedTech newsmakers, the podcast gets into how Surgical Robotics and the ZBEdge’s connected ecosystem of sensors, data and devices are leveraging centers of excellence for development.

The first segment features an interview with Robert Kraal of Zimmer Biomet speaking with Tom Salemi about his history as an MD and journey into MedTech. He speaks about how clinical insights gathered via sensors can drive prediction of outcomes. Specifically ZBEdge is a connected suite of sensor/data based intelligence in the orthopedic space. He then moves the conversation into his company’s partnership with HSS in creating the HSS/Zimmer Biomet Center for AI and Joint Replacement and how they intend to leverage data collection and interpretation to drive improvements in care decisions and outcomes. The long term goal is robotic decision support tools based on the collection and application of both historical best practices and real time data.

The second segment includes a live interview from a few weeks ago between Tom and Vicarious Surgical’s CEO Adam Sachs. The conversation with Adam covers a wide range of aspects of his business and product development, focusing on the novel mechanical engineering necessary for Vicarious’ single incision multi-axis robotic device. Adam addresses some questions provided from the audience, and discusses the criticality of partnering with medical centers of excellence in their product development and movement toward commercialization.

At Cirtronics, we’re honored to support the people who are creating the next generation of MedTech: In this case, using surgical robotics and edge computing technology to advance the state of the art of medical technology.
