Innovation for medicine, research and industry

Welcome to
the MIRO Innovation Lab

We are a modern research platform and versatile collaborative network for medical robotics.

Medical robotics is a strong growth market: from diagnosis to therapy, robotic assistance systems are already in use in many medical fields. The rise in robotic applications will lead to gentler treatments for patients and a considerable ease on clinicians in future. This is where the MIRO Innovation Lab comes in. Our aim is to apply innovation in practice more quickly by working closely with partners from industry, clinics and other research institutions.
