Curexo Co., Ltd. (www.curexo.com) is a home-grown, global manufacturer of specialized medical robots and medical devices whose business centres largely on the continued research, development, and sales of their flagship product, the artificial joint surgery robot, Robodoc. A world-class company, its leaders operate with a philosophical commitment to contribute to the global community by providing differentiated products and medical solutions based on advanced medical technologies. Founded in December 1992, Curexo was listed on the KOSDAQ in July 2002. In March of this year, the Board of Directors made the decision to transfer the Medical Robot sector of Hyundai Heavy Industries to Curexo; the deal was finalized on September 8th. As a result of this decision, Curexo expanded and diversified their line-up with Hyundai Heavy Industries’ medical robots such as the Intervention robot ROBIN, Walk-training robots Morning Walk, and Patient handling-robots Carrybot.

▲TSolution One
Curexo’s flagship product “Robodoc,” is an artificial joint surgery robot system; the company launced a new product in 2017 called “TSolution One.” When the cartilage becomes damaged or worn out and the joints fail to function due to degenerative arthritis or external trauma, the damaged joint bones are removed and and artificial joints are inserted during artificial joint surgery. The artificial joint surgery robot is a high-performance computer with the ability to calculate the position and angle of the affected area of the patient with a high degree of accuracy, more so than the human hand. The TSolution One, uses a high-performance computer to calculate the cutting location and angle of the hip joint based on CT scans of the patient to guide the doctor to make precise cuts to difficult areas of surgery that are not easily visible to the naked eye. Robotic artificial joint surgery can be customized to the patient’s operation. Robodoc can be used to select the most appropriate artificial joints for the patient and then make the insertion. This product was found in compliance with safety regulations and approved by the US FDA.

▲Morning Walk
The rehabilitation robot for walk training, Morning Walk, helps to rehabilitate those whose walking abilities have suffered due to diseases or accidents. Morning Walk is a seat-type weight support system that minimizes the inconvenience of existing robot-assisted orthopaedic exercise devices. This robot requires no additional equipment, and the patient’s preparation time is less than 5 minutes. Moreover, unlike existing equipment on the market, Morning Walk is able to incorporate movements that mimic stairs and slope walking exercises, making its rehabilitation training all the more realistic. This product can be used by all age groups – from children to adults. By adjusting the gait, pace, tread angle, and angle of departure, Morning Walk is also able to provide patient-customized training. Moreover, by using the virtual reality software, the patient’s treatment become interactive, thus raising the interest level for the patient during his or her rehabilitation. This system meets medical device standards and has been given medical device certification. The company has filed for various domestic and foreign intellectual property rights including “Seated-type walking and rehabilitation device”. Safety features have been enhanced for the safety of the patients. The maximum patient weight is 135kg.

▲ROBIN
The intervention procedure needle-guiding robot ROBIN uses CT images to guide the insertion path of a needle. An acronym for ROBot for Intervention, ROBIN helps to achieve more precise, safer, and quicker intervention procedures – a win-win for doctors, patients, and hospitals. Developed with advanced medical robot technology by Hyundai Heavy Industries, the technology is safe, accurate and easy to use. Using ROBIN, the doctor can insert the needle more easily and with more precision than current methods. The robot arm guides the needle according to the insertion route generated on the basis of the CT image, and once the needle is inserted, the needle position is supported to maintain its position. Radiation exposure to patients can also be reduced, as is the potential for side effects. This is due to the nature of the robotic arm, whose high rigidity maintains the position of the needle, thereby achieving precise needle insertion, reducing repetitions of CT scans, and in turn reducing side effects. This technology will allow hospitals to increase their profit margins, as it reduces the time and work required to determine the the needle insertion point and the position of the needle. Compared to current procedures, with its steep learning curve, the system allows even beginners to become skilled quickly.

▲Carrybot
Carrybot, the patient-handling robot, helps carers to move patients comfortably and safely. By employing a strength reduction effect, the robot ensures that moving patients becomes easier.
