A surgeon uses ROSA to perform brain surgery. ROSA’s precision and steadiness ensure the surgery goes smoothly.

Robo Sally practices disarming a weapon. She is operated by a human soldier who stays a safe distance away.

Meet ROSA Speaking of lifesavers, meet ROSA! ROSA stands for Robotized Surgical Assistant. T is robotic arm helps brain surgeons perform surgeries safer, faster, and more eff ectively than ever. Before surgery, ROSA creates a detailed map of a patient’s brain. T en the surgeon can tell the precise location in the brain where he or she needs to operate. ROSA’s job doesn’t end there. To reach the

brain, a surgeon usually has to remove a section of the skull. So part of the brain is exposed during surgery. T at’s risky. Instead of removing part of the skull,

ROSA helps surgeons drill tiny holes the size of pinpoints. T en ROSA’s arm can precisely insert instruments into the brain that measure brain activity, burn away tumors, and perform other lifesaving actions. ROSA is only one of several robot assistants

used for surgery. T ey all provide a level of precision and steadiness that no surgeon’s hands can match.
