Medical Robotics Challenge
This year, the KUKA Innovation Award’s international jury of experts received a total of more than 40 ideas. The five finalist teams now have until November to implement their ideas. A KUKA LBR Med lightweight robot – the first robotic component to be certified for integration into a medical device – has been made available to them for this purpose. Beyond this, the teams receive a training for the hardware and coaching from KUKA experts throughout the competition. The finalists present their concepts to an international specialist audience at the largest medical technology trade fair MEDICA in November, and the jury crowns the winner of the 20,000 EUR KUKA Innovation Award.
