Each year the RBR50 Awards recognize leading robotics companies with innovative products that have successfully transformed their vertical markets. The 2019 list, released today, includes Corindus Vascular Robotics in the Emerging Markets category for healthcare – joining other groundbreaking companies that are changing the future of robotics. The annual list recognizes companies whose robotic and automated products offer solutions to the world’s most complex problems.
In the U.S. there are fewer than 200 comprehensive stroke centers, posing a significant obstacle to stroke patients who do not live within range of one. As we move towards FDA clearance for neurovascular intervention, we envision our technology helping to play a critical role in fighting this epidemic. We’re working to someday enable physicians to perform procedures that require the highest level of skill and attention remotely, granting access to high quality care to underserved patient populations without geographic barriers to treatment. The CorPath System creates the opportunity for patients to receive life-saving treatment from a doctor who is outside of their physical reach.
With 87% of the 795,000 strokes recorded in United States each year being categorized as ischemic, meaning blood flow to the brain is blocked, time to treatment is critical for saving lives and preserving brain function. Corindus’ ultimate goal is to reduce the time to treatment for vascular emergencies and provide care to remote areas that lack sufficient treatment options.
Awarded by the Robotics Business Review editorial team and numerous industry experts, the 2019 RBR50 Awards recognizes the 50 most influential companies in the robotics industry today, including companies like Intuitive Surgical, Auris Health and Veo Robotics.
