Abstract

The project Minimally Invasive Robot-Assisted Computer-guided LaserosteotomE or in short, MIRACLE, is devoted to the development of an integrated miniaturized system able to perform minimally invasive osteotomies that are less stressful for the patients. The technologies required to master these goals are in the field of laser physics, medical robotics, virtual planning and intraoperative navigation. The project is under the leadership of Professor Hans-Florian Zeilhofer and Professor Philippe Cattin from the Biomedical Engineering Department of the Medical Faculty of the University of Basel. It consists of several sub-projects that focus on  laser and robotic technology, the navigation of the robot-guided laser system during surgery, as well as on the development of custom-made implants which have additional functional capabilities.

The Werner Siemens-Foundation of Zug supports this project with a grant of 15.2 million Swiss francs over a period of five years.
