After three years of hard work and collaboration, Cyber Surgery and Virtualware have successfully finished the development of the ASSURE project. The objectives of ASSURE have been to develop a safe and flexible robotic surgical assistant for spine surgeries using intelligent guidance and the support of a virtual reality training environment.

Robotic Surgical Assistant & VR Training Solutions Developed
Through this collaborative project, a flexible and robust human-machine interface for a new surgical robot with real-time intraoperative verification functionalities based on image processing algorithms was created. To properly educate and prepare surgeons in the use of the robotic assistant, the project produced a sophisticated virtual training environment as well.

Collaborative Health Tech Innovation
Cyber Surgery and Virtualware worked together with Vicomtech, Ceit, Virtualware Labs, BioDonostia and BioCruces on the ASSURE project in Donostia – San Sebastián, Spain from 2019 to 2022.

ASSURE has been funded by the Basque Government through the Hazitek call.
