ROSA™ is Medtech’s medical robotic technology, dedicated to minimally invasive surgeries of the central nervous system. ROSA™ robots assist health professionals during surgical procedures, increasing the precision and reliability of the gestures and reducing the operating time.

The ROSA™ technology is used in 23 hospitals across Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.[1]

The device allows frameless stereotactic procedures increasing accuracy [2] and reducing operative time.[3][4] It is especially effective for SEEG, DBS, endoscopic procedures, brain tumor resection and pediatric surgery.[5][6]

The ROSA device is an integrated platform solution combining software for neurosurgical planning and navigation, with a robotic arm of high technology.[7]

The system was designed by Medtech (Montpellier, France) and is currently used in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.[8][9]
