Curexo (CEO, Jaejun Lee, www.curexo.com) specializes in high quality medical robots firmly rooted in advanced, state of the art technology.

In June 2007, Curexo acquired the assets of the American company ISS thereby acquiring the rights to IBM’s robot-related intellectual property rights and founded a subsidiary company, Think Surgical Inc. (TSI, https://thinksurgical.com/), to develop, manufacture and market artificial joint surgery robots. Located in Fremont, California, TSI provides the world’s first artificial joint surgical robots. 40,000 surgeries have been conducted so far around the world.

In September 2017, Curexo took over Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Medical Robotics Division and are now rapidly expanding the R&D and commercialization of their lower-limb rehabilitation robots, interventional robots, and orthopedic surgical robots. The company has also recently signed an MOU with Yonsei Severance Hospital to develop spinal surgery robots. In addition, to reduce childbirth delivery time and increase the rate of natural deliveries, the company has developed a new-concept machine to induce natural deliveries, a device which is expected to sell widely in Korea and abroad.

Curexo is currently proceeding quickly with projects that include the artificial joint surgical robot, ‘Robodoc;’ robotic surgical consumables; the gait rehabilitation robot, ‘Morning Walk;’ the Natural Childbirth Assistor, ‘Baidy;’ the upper limb rehabilitation robot, ‘InMotion;’ and artificial joints.

Curexo’s artificial joint surgical robot, ‘TSolution One’ was developed in 1986 and is the product of a collaborative process between corporations and organizations in America. In 1992, the first successful human hip replacement surgery took place, receiving the Computerworld Smithsonian Award that year. Since then, R&D on the commercialization of the surgical robot system has increased, with commercialization beginning in Europe in 1990.

The robotic system for artificial joint surgery is a precise surgical tool that offers 3D Pre-planning, Virtual Surgery, and precision Cutting to aid doctors in precision and accuracy during surgery.

▲TPLAN
The TSolution One surgical system is an artificial joint surgical robot for use in the field of orthopedics. The system consists of a high performance computer, TPLAN
a pre-surgery tool used to assess the affected area in preparation for a more specific and delicate surgical procedure; and TCAT, a surgical robot that automatically applies the planned out data to the patient to make precise cuts to the surgical area.

TPLAN’S Surface Model Generation (SMG) technology is able to convert the patient’s CT image into 3D images by reconstructing the surface of the bones at the exclusion of the surrounding tissues. For the surgeon, the resultant image is akin to directly viewing the affected area, which enables a better diagnosis and a surgical procedure more suited to the patient. Virtual surgery is also possible. TCAT’s cutting process includes fixation of the patient’s leg, registration of the affected area, and verification of the planned surgery location and area, after which the bone area is configured by the robot to precisely cut for implant insertion. By monitoring the movements of the patient during surgery using the Bone Motion Monitor (BMM), the robot stops all movement if fine movements in the patient are detected.

▲Morning Walk
‘Morning Walk,’ a gait rehabilitation robot was developed to provide quick rehabilitation to people with walking difficulties. It is a seat-based, weight supported system designed to minimize the inconvenience of current robot-assisted orthopedic exercise devices.

Morning Walk’s unique saddle-type body weight support system minimizes training prep time, reducing prep time to just 3 minutes.

Rehabilitation training is possible for all age groups, from children to adults. Gait analysis, stride width, tread angle, and various other gait motions can be varied for personalized training. Virtual reality software hold’s the patient’s interest during training.

‘Baidy,’ a natural childbirth assistor is a device that increases intrauterine pressure, which assists in the natural childbirth labor process. This is a new concept, new technological product that helps both the mother and infant in the natural childbirth process. Epidural analgesia is commonly used to reduce pain in natural childbirth, but, while this reduces the pain of labor, it also decreases both uterine activity and the maternal urge to push, resulting in a prolonged delivery time and, possibly, operative or assisted delivery. Baidy provides air pressure to the abdomen and increases intrauterine pressure, thus reducing labor time and the need to use assistive tools for delivery.

Through products such as their surgical robots and natural childbirth assistor, Curexo has made it their mission to add increased value to healthcare.
