Kwon Dong-soo, CEO of EasyEndo Surgical, won the Presidential Citation at the 13th Korea Robot Award Awards and people of Robot Night. Professor Kwon Dong-Soo’s research team started research on medical robots for the first time in Korea. K-FLEX, the soft surgical robot developed for the first time in Korea, won the Best Application Award and Overall Winner in ‘Surgical Robot Challenge’ of Hamlyn Symposium 2018, Winning the status of Korea in the field of robotics.
In addition, they have established “Easy Endeavor Curriculum” to contribute to society by commercializing research results as products rather than research. Flexible medical robots, which are the flagship items, make it easy to operate in areas that were not accessible from conventional surgery, provide intuitive and convenient operation to doctors, and speed up recovery by minimizing incisions in patients. Professor Kwon Dong-soo has given the honor of the Presidential Commendation to the graduates and students of Telelobotics and Control Lab. (TCL) lab and declared that we will work to become the world ‘s remarkable global medical robot company.
CEO, Kwon Dong-soo, was awarded the Technology Prize at the 6th Board of Directors Meeting of the Korea Robotics Society held at The-K Hotel Seoul on December 7. The Korean Robotics Society presents technology awards to those who have contributed significantly to the development of robotic technology and industry. He received high praise for his remarkable contribution to the development of robot technology and industry through his unique technology and product development, and was congratulated and praised by many people.
CEO and seven researchers of KAIST have been invited to participate in the “A flexible endoscopic surgery robot K-FLEX and its feasibility validation in in vivo animal trail” at the 2018 18th Asian Conference on Computer Aided Surgery (ACCAS 2018) Paper.
K-FLEX was awarded the Best Application Award and the overall winner at the Surgical Robot Challenge 2018 sponsored by Hanlyn Center, Imperial College London, UK, as a flexible endoscopic surgical robot.
ACCAS 2018 is a society focused on new algorithms, system development, medical imaging technology, medical device, instrument and robot assisted surgery. Researchers from all over the world as well as from Asia participated in this project.
‘K-FLEX’, Korea’s first flexible endoscopic surgery robot developed by KAIST Future Medical Robotics Group (Director: Prof. Kwon Dong-soo), won the Best Application Award and the entire championship prize at ‘Surgical Robot Challenge 2018’ hosted by Hamlyn Center, Imperial College London, UK on June 29, Netherlands, Switzerland, and other robots in the surgical robots. K-FLEX will perform precise and agile surgical operations with the aid of two surgical tools, a flexible over-tube, and an ergonomic design that are freely movable in the surgical robot demonstration on Sunday, June 24 It is possible to apply it to actual operation. ‘Surgical Robot Challenge’ is a contest to compete innovative ideas of robot technology applicable to surgery. It is the most prestigious competition among surgical robots. Applicability and ripple effect, Innovation, Design, etc. are based on the standards of robots. This competition is held annually as part of the world-renowned Medical Robotics Society ‘Hamlyn Symposium’. Professor Kwon Dong-soo said, “The winner is recognized as a world-renowned technology of the founding company, and the new starting point of the Korean medical device industry has been a research for 20 years.”
