A tiny microrobot

The ultimate tool for all neurosurgical interventions requiring high precision through 3D, non-linear movements and live-data collection.
At the crossroads of robotics, AI, physics, material sciences, chemistry, biology and medicine lies a new approach to creating a neurosurgical microrobot.
A modular medical device: a standard carrier with multiple extensions, allowing the device to adapt to different medical indications through AI. To implant an electrode, deliver molecules, sample tissue or collect live data through sensors.


Have you ever wondered why insects can run on the surface of water?

The answer is in the fact that the forces that dominate at a larger scale, are no longer dominating at the millimeter scale. Inertia and weight become insignificant. Oppositely, adhesion forces become dominant and transform water into a cement floor under the moving insect.


Of the same size as that tiny insect, the microrobot is governed by the same forces.

They impact everything from its movement among our cells to interactions with materials, to micro-fabrication and micro-assembly. Everything has to be thought through that lens.

This has led the passionate researchers at Robeauté to study micro-organisms and to custom micro-fabrication processes and micro-assembly techniques that today are part of the company’s unique knowhow.


The unexplored potential of medical micro-robotics

Microrobots have not yet entered hospitals because technology and fabrication techniques were not evolved enough to meet the medical requirements. Today this has changed.

A technology that can navigate the brain with minimal invasiveness while collecting information to help physicians better cure patients carries tremendous potential.
