Researchers at the SickKids Hospital Centre for Image-Guided Innovation & Therapeutic Intervention (CIGITI) in Toronto, Canada, turned to the technology behind Dextre, the Canadian Space Agency’s robotic handyman on the International Space Station, to build a new robot capable of performing delicate procedures on little patients more accurately and faster than a surgeon’s hands.
