A-Traction Inc.

Surgical robots for laparoscopic surgery are becoming ever more popular across the world. In Japan, even though research of surgical robots began at nearly the same time as the US, Japan is lagging far behind in terms of commercialization. One reason is thought to be the difficulty of commercialization of medical devices, which leads to a barrier for entry for large companies. A-Traction Inc. was established as a startup to develop novel and high quality surgical robots for laparoscopic surgery. We hope that our surgical robots will help increase the QOL of all patients.
