Founded in 2009 by Philippe Bencteux, MD, Robocath designs, develops and commercializes smart robotic solutions to treat cardiovascular diseases. As an active player in the digital evolution of the medical industry, its smart connected solutions aim to enhance hand gestures and make medical procedures safer.
Robocath develops robotic solutions which integrate a unique bionic technology that optimizes the safety of robotic-assisted coronary angioplasty. This medical procedure consists of revascularizing the cardiac muscle by inserting one or more implants (stents) into the arteries that supply it with blood. Every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, this type of procedure is performed. Robocath’s robotic solutions are designed to operate with precision and perform accurate movements, creating better interventional conditions. Thanks to their open architecture, they are all compatible with market-leading devices and cathlabs.
The company received the CE marking for R-One, its first robotic solution, in 2019. In a prospective, multicenter, non-randomized, single-arm clinical trial, R-One demonstrated safety and efficacy as it achieved more than 95% technical procedure success with no MACE (major adverse cardiovascular events). Currently R-One is used in Europe, Africa and China.
By pursuing the development of smart digital solutions, Robocath aims to become a world leader in vascular robotics. Based in Rouen, France, Robocath has more than 70 employees.
