Medical stitching by hand is tricky, because it relies on the practitioner’s ability, alertness, dexterity, and training, and hasn’t changed much over the years. Alexander Berry, the company’s director and product designer, and the rest of the Sutrue team used 3D printing and CAD technology to develop the automated surgical suturing device.
There have been over 10,000 patent attempts to make a suturing device, and Sutrue was the first company to successfully create one. In September, Sutrue had reached the demo stage of an endoscopic version of the device, and now the company has announced two new automated devices – an Endoscopic/Robotic Suturing Device and a Handheld Suturing Device. According to Berry, rapid prototyping was a key factor in the development process…”
