Computer-assisted surgery specialists Acrobot has secured £2.6m ($5.3m) in its first round of financing, allowing the company to take its technology to market and develop new products. The financing, which came from London Technology Fund, PUK Ventures and Imperial Innovations Group, will be used for the full commercialisation of the company's planner and navigation technologies, and continue the development of its active constraint technology for robotic applications. Acrobot (London, UK) had previously developed the navigation system in collaboration with UK orthopaedic device manufacturer the Corin Group, with the aim of combining robotic technology into the latter's Cormet metal on metal hip resurfacing implant.
