MAKO Surgical Corp. has released a medical robotic arm called the "Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System (RIO)
It is another breakthrough in the field of surgery is the Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System (RIO) by MAKO Surgical Corp.
Indeed, the medical world has just gotten better and better and now with the innovation brought about by RIO, surgical experience will not become as dreaded as they have been, but rather a more meaningful experience that will help restore the health and overall wellness of patients.

The Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System (RIO) is a state of the art, robotic surgical facility with built in tangible robotic arms technology. It has been designed to act with human-like intelligence within surgical instruments. RIO is also replete with high definition patient-specific visualization system to plan in advance and treat patients in a unique manner with precision and accuracy.
Specifically, RIO’s knee application will work forward as a virtual cutting guide thus erasing cutting blogs and jigs for less invasive, bone and tissue sparing partial knee surfacing. Furthermore, RIO’s thigh, hip & arms application offers exact and precise facility to aid in cup placement and leg length restoration with the best, maximized combined anteversion.
Among the unique features of RIO include:
• Well planned and designed implant size, orientation and alignment with the help of CT-derived 3-D modeling.
• Pre-resection enabled to take shot of the patient-specific kinematic tracking through full flexion and extension.
• Real-time intra-operative adjustments for correct knee kinematics and soft-tissue balance.
• Less invasive and bone sparing, with minimal tissue trauma for faster recovery.
