The occurrence of a stroke is an absolute emergency requiring a response within 2 to 6 hours. Neuro-intervention techniques are now restricted by the complexity and time required to achieve certain brain lesions.
Artedrone is developing the first microrobotic platform for interventional neuroradiology to remotely guide micro-robots into the patient's cerebral vasculature.
Micro/nanorobots of 500 microns to 2 mm navigate in cerebral or peripheral arteries, guided remotely by external magnetic fields generated by magnets, controlled by 3D imaging techniques and a global positioning system to: treat cerebral arterial malformations, unblock cerebral arteries, deep embolize vascular networks of tumors and deliver drugs as close as possible to their therapeutic target.
