Intuitive surgical announces new robot with their best technology but at lower cost
Intuitive have announced the availability of a new robotic called the Da Vinci X. This will have all the technology of the Latest Xi but at lower cost.
Interesting development as Medtronic and Ethicon both prepare to bring their robotic platforms to the market in the coming months.
Also very interstingly although the Da Vinci X has a CE mark, it is not 510(k) cleared so not for sale in the USA, to it looks like this is specifically targetted to the Non-US market which is much more cost conscious.
