Was Hugo actually the Titan SPORT?

Where is the Hugo made? In Connecticut? or Boston?

What makes you say that?

After all the stink Medtronic has made about their robotic surgery program, they invest in Titan Medical, which has essentially been the walking dead of robotic surgery for years with nothing to show for it. I don't think it shows much confidence in Medtronic's program with this type of move.

Don’t worry, they are. I worked on the real Hugo. This looks nothing like it.

It seems more like Transenterix robot than the da Vinci or the CRM robot. I was expecting so much more. Disappointing. Hopefully they were holding back on a second platform, not showing their full hand.

It looks like there are some high-flyer inventors in the field of medical devices. The industry needs people like you who are able to publish and develop the most cutting-edge technologies. Just sell your ideas as freelancer or revolutionize the world! Feel free!

It really does look exactly like the TransEnterix Senhance. How can Medtronic differentiate from Intuitive or even TransEnterix?

Medtronic's system looks just like it but that doesn't matter. They'll be able to sell their unlike TransEnterix who hasn't even been able to sell their systems in the US.

For years, people have been crying about MDT not having a robot. Now there is one, and the same people are judging it to be inferior based on a single photo. It’s no wonder Intuitive is eating your lunch every day! Bunch of crybabies.

Multiple arms instead of one unit must be a way to get around IP. Having one base taking up less space is ideal as there is more and more tech in the operating rooms. 3-4 individual "arms" each with a base seems to be a work around. Hopefully there will be a version 2 to follow shortly after. Cant see this being successfull unless its free and just the instruments are at a cost that is equal or less.

It doesn't look like much but they have contracts and a sales force unlike the smaller players like TransEnterix.

My first thought as well. What are they offering that isn't already out there?

A deep, deep discount on a device equivalent to Senhance.
