MDA is working in partnership with the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto on
KidsArm, a sophisticated tele-operated surgical system specifically designed for
operating on small children and babies. KidsArm combines robotics with state-of-the-art
visualization technology to reconnect delicate vessels such as veins, arteries,
The initial prototype will include an advanced miniature suturing capability to
operate on tiny vessels. It is undergoing assessment for more general use in a broad
range of adult surgeries.
