Guidewire joystick

This joystick enables guidewire translation, rotation and both simultaneously. Two speeds are available.

Stent/balloon and catheter joystick

This joystick enables translation of the balloon/stent catheter. Two speeds are available.

Fixing Support


Emergency Stop Button

To come back at any time in manual procedure.

Guidewire Clamp Button

This function secures the guidewire position during the procedure and enable to maintain the guidewire always in place.


Sterile clipped system for each procedure (disposable).

Release arm braking

This function allows robotic arm movements and enable the cardiologist to place the robot in the perfect position before the procedure.

Guidewire (1) & stent/ballon (2) paths

(1) This path is dedicated to the guidewire. It allows translation and rotation movements simultaneously and enable to always keep in place the guidewire. It is compatible with market leading guidewires. (2) This path is dedicated to the stent/balloon catheter. It allows translation movements. It is compatible with market leading stent/balloon catheters.

Stand-by path (3)

(3) This function enables to put guidewires and stent/balloon catheters on hold.

How does it work?

R-One+™ robotic assistance platform was designed using a global approach to the needs of interventional cardiology. It integrates flawlessly with the interventional protocol. R-One+™ is designed to provide physicians with reliable, precise assistance during procedures and enhance movements creating better interventional conditions, in particular by being totally protected from x-rays.

R-One+™ comprises two core elements:
- Command Unit which can be positioned in the cathlab (combined with a mobile radioprotection screen) or in the control room,
- Robotic unit comprising the robot and its articulated support arm.

The architecture of medical robot R-One+™ permit to use guidewires, balloon, stent catheters (non-simultaneously). It is compatible with market leading devices (guidewires, stent/balloons, imaging systems, etc.). It takes just a few minutes to install and integrates flawlessly with the intervention protocol, without adding any additional steps.

Professor E. Durand, interventional cardiologist at Rouen University Hospital (France)
There are very clear advantages for the physician in terms of precision, which indirectly will benefit the patient.
Doctor J. Fajadet, co-director of the cardiovascular disease department at the Clinique Pasteur in Toulouse (France), co-director of EuroPCR congress and Director of the EAPCI
The precision in the manipulation of the wire and the balloon/stent catheter is really exceptional.
Professor M. Haude, interventional cardiologist and Director of Medical Clinic I at Rheinland Klinikum Neuss, Lukaskrankenhaus (Germany)
The benefits brought by R-One™ are huge for practitioners and will drastically improve our working conditions, which will consequently benefit patient care.
Professor F. Lorgat, interventional cardiologist, Netcare Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital (South-Africa)
I have been following this project closely for several years, as my experience with robotics in electrophysiology has clearly shown me all the benefits that such devices can have for our profession and ultimately, for the patient.
Professor S. Verheye, interventional cardiologist at ZNA Middelheim in Antwerp (Belgium)
I was immediately impressed by the platform’s ease of use and its level of precision. The robot places the stent even more precisely than with the manual technique, down to a fraction of a millimeter.

Next applications

Innovation is at the heart of Robocath’s strategy. New patents are regularly filed for new technologies that will be used in future medical specialties. Robocath’s aim is to guarantee the same access to treatment for all through the development of remote interventions, including the remote treatment of vascular emergencies such as strokes. This model will provide better care for this type of pathology, more quickly and under better conditions. Research is currently underway to develop robotics platforms for peripheral vascular and neurovascular procedures.
