1. Best robotics startups in the UK: Cambridge Medical Robotics
Minimally invasive surgery tends to be a highly expensive procedure, but Cambridge Medical Robotics is developing a next-generation robotic system that could make it affordable and universally accessible. The startup has already successfully tested the performance of the platform on cadavers.
The big plans have already attracted big backing. In July 2016, the company raised $20.3 million in a Series A funding round from investors including ABB Technology Ventures, LGT Global Invest and Cambridge Innovation Capital.
