LBR Med: a collaborative robot for medical applications

The sensitive LBR Med robot has been adapted to meet specific medical requirements and is perfectly suited for a wide range of assistance systems in medical technology on account of its human-robot collaboration capability.

One-of-a-kind robotic component for integration into a medical product

From diagnostics to treatment and surgical interventions – the LBR Med stands out as a perfect assistant for diverse tasks in the field of healthcare. The sensitive seven-axis lightweight robot is flexible and easy to integrate into medical products for various medical activities. With its responsive sensors, comprehensive safety precautions, hygiene-optimized surfaces and a controller designed for direct collaboration with the human operator, it is ideally suited to applications in medical technology. Moreover, the robotic component makes it much easier and quicker for manufacturers of medical devices to develop products and also to get them approved, because the LBR Med is certified in accordance with the internationally recognized CB Scheme.

The versatile robot for assistance tasks in the healthcare sector

The LBR Med robot that is integrated into a medical product facilitates interaction between the medical robot and the physician and patient.

This type of sensitive, collaborative robotics will bring with it many further advantages in medical environments in the future, with all sides ideally complementing one another and able to exploit their respective strengths. The physician or therapist plans, controls and monitors, while the medical robot performs the tiring and strenuous tasks and those that require particular precision and above all sensitivity.

Flexible connection possibilities

On account of its versatile media flange Inside electrical Med, the LBR Med can be simply and flexibly integrated into various medical products. For customized medical instruments, a range of connections are available on the flange, e.g. for power supply, I/Os or EtherNet.

Simple integration thanks to flexible media flange.

For assistance tasks in the healthcare sector: safe, precise and consistent


Precise

The LBR Med requires no additional devices for calibration or high-precision work. Integrated mastering sensors pave the way for an entirely autonomous calibration process. Depending on the variant, the LBR Med achieves an outstanding repeatability of ±0.1 mm to ±0.15 mm.

Flexible

Designed as a universally deployable component, the LBR Med can be seamlessly integrated into a wide range of solutions. With a variety of preconfigured interfaces, it serves as a versatile robot system for a variety of applications in medical technology.

Safe

The LBR Med has an extensive safety structure. Relevant signals are evaluated on a safety-oriented basis by both hardware and software. The safety equipment includes force/torque sensor systems, single fault safety, safety interfaces and configurable safety events.

Sensitive

Based on the sensitive KUKA LBR iiwa robot that has proven itself in industrial environments, the LBR Med is likewise equipped with redundant integrated torque sensors. These endow it with strong haptic capabilities, the ability to perceive external influences, and safe collision detection, making the LBR Med HRC-compliant.
