Study Affirms Safety and Efficacy of Flex Robotic System

July 20, 2016

An open label study on Medrobotic’s Flex Robotic System showed that the device is safe and effective in treating throat lesions in 91 percent of cases.

The research, which involved 80 patients treated in Europe between July 2014 and October 2015, was presented at the American Head & Neck Society International Conference in Seattle.

Medrobotic reported that 58 percent of the procedures in the post-market study were performed in areas of the throat considered difficult to reach, such as the base of the tongue and the vocal cords. — Anisa Jibrell
