KUKA LBR Med lightweight robot
The LBR Med - now in serial production - is the first stand-alone robot manipulator that meets the regulatory requirements of IEC 60601-1 (Medical Device Directive in Europe).
"KUKA has made extensive adaptations to enable operation of the innovative lightweight robot under the strict requirements of medical treatment and interventions. It has biocompatible and corrosion-resistant surfaces. Internally routed connections offer a further point of compliance with the hygienic standards in doctors’ offices, clinics and operating rooms. KUKA also guarantees inspection of the LBR Med through the IECEE CB scheme according to standard IEC 60601-1. With the CB Certificate and CB Report from KUKA, complex testing is reduced and certification procedures are made significantly easier. KUKA already takes care of this in the factory.
As a robot component for a vast range of tasks, the robot can be integrated into medical products by the medical product manufacturer. Equipped with the right tools and program, the LBR Med can be used to assist with endoscopy or biopsies. It can be used to saw bones or for the fixation of pedicle screws. The sensitive seven-axis robot is based on revolutionary lightweight robot technology from KUKA. It has been completely redefining human-robot collaboration for years."
