Cambridge Medical Robotics, a company based in Cambridge, developing a miniature surgical robot has been named as one of the top ten business disruptors in the UK.
CMR has featured in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 10 league table. The table identifies some of the UK’s most disruptive private companies. The list is recognised as a definitive guide to companies, which have a product, service or business model which is creating a new market or transforming existing markets and showing strong growth.
Cambridge Medical Robotics has developed Versuis, a medical robot designed to meet the needs of laprascopic surgery, and has filed more than 100 patents throughout it’s development. Inspired by a human arm, with considerable dexterity, flexibility and reach – CMR hopes the robot will help make minimal access surgery available to all.
Peter Kelly, managing director at Virgin Media Business, said: “We are delighted to name Cambridge Medical Robotics as a one of the UK’s most disruptive businesses. They have seen an opportunity and made it their purpose to disrupt long established markets and practices.”
“For us at Virgin Media Business it is our purpose to help all businesses fulfil their digital potential and we recognise how much digital advancement has been a key focus for these new and disruptive companies.”
