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, or intestines.

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.
