STIFF-FLOP is using the octopus arm as a role model to create novel medical tools. This will open up the option of more advanced surgical procedures.
Find out about the STIFF-FLOP project which aims to create a robotic arm based on an octopus tentacle, allowing us to innovate and push the boundaries of current medical robotics technology and providing solutions with real benefits for patients and surgical staff. Join members of the Centre for Robotics Research, Kings College London to experience the future of surgery.
