DistalMotion to Present at Piper Jaffray Healthcare Conference

Press Release

DistalMotion, a Swiss medical device venture and the developer of the Dexter surgical robot for laparoscopy, will be presenting at the 30th Annual Piper Jaffray Healthcare Conference in New York on November 29, 2018 at 7:30 am. This showcase takes part in a larger initiative to secure the funding for rapid European market penetration starting mid-2019.

About DistalMotion: Dexter integrates all the dexterity, precision and surgeon ergonomics benefits of robotic surgery into established laparoscopic procedure setups and workflows. Based on this simplicity, Dexter reduces the cost of robotic surgery by up to 90%.

​Contrary to other robots that place the surgeon into a non-sterile console away from the patient, Dexter enables the surgeon to remain sterile and at the patient. The surgeon can use the robot where it makes sense – that is for long and complex surgical tasks such as suturing and dissection. For short and specialized tasks such as stapling or vessel sealing, the surgeon can return to the patient within 20 seconds and perform those tasks using proven, third-party laparoscopic instruments.

To facilitate rapid adoption by operating rooms across hospital sizes and territories, Dexter is offered in a disruptive pay-per-use business model: The robot is rented, and procedure packs as well as fully articulated, single-use instruments are then sold for each procedure.
