AOT receives CE certification for CARLO surgical tool

Swiss medical technology startup Advanced Osteotomy Tools (AOT) has secured European approval for the CARLO robot-assisted surgical tool.

CARLO, or Cold Ablation Robot-guided Laser Osteotome, cuts bones precisely and contact-free with a specialised laser using a robot.

The laser head is mounted on a tactile robotic arm, which is controlled by a navigation system.

For CE certification, CARLO was used for the first time in a clinical study on operations for jaw correction. This study proved the efficiency and safety of the technology in a clinical environment.

The University Hospital Basel, the Medical University of Vienna (AKH Wien) and the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf took part in the study.

Commenting on the CE certification for CARLO, Cyrill Bätscher, chief executive officer of AOT, said: “The CE certification after years of intensive development is an important milestone. We have demonstrated the enormous potential of contact-free, robot-assisted surgery based on our laser technology for cutting bones.”
