It is clear that existing MIS technologies offer a mutually exclusive choice between functionality (provided by surgical robots) and affordability (provided by existing hand-held mechanical tools). The lack of an affordable technology with adequate functionality presents an opportunity for significant innovation – one that FlexDex LLC is targeting.
