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.
