SAFROS – Patient Safety in Robotic Surgery

The SAFROS project is a Seventh Framework Programme research project (FP7-ICT-2009.5.2). Its goal is to address the development of technologies for patient safety in robotic surgery. Its aims are to define patient safety metrics for surgical procedures; to develop methods that abide by safety requirements; and to demonstrate that a properly controlled robotic suergery carried out in accordance to our safety criteria can improve the level of patient safety currently achievable by traditional surgery.

The SAFROS consortium is composed of:

  • hospitals with worldwide reputation to provide medical knowledge and to validate the approach;

  • European leading research groups in telerobotics and surgical robotics;

  • innovative companies to develop new technologies for surgical simulators;

  • the World Health Organization to offer global expertise in safety guidenlines for patient surgery;

  • renowed educational organizations to provide innovative surgeon training.
