The Instruments Division of Stryker Corporation officially opened its new Surgical Innovation Centre in Cork today.
The Innovation Centre, which features unique design and collaboration workspaces, state-of-the-art prototyping and test facilities, and a simulated operating room, is the first of its kind in Ireland. The centre will focus on the development of new technologies and products to improve patient safety and outcomes during surgery, and increase operating room efficiency across multiple surgical specialties including neuro, spine, ENT and orthopaedic surgery.
Constructed around human-centred design principles, employee wellbeing and a highly efficient and sustainable building design, the centre will allow research and development teams and surgeons to collaborate globally in the development and evaluation of new surgical approaches, product concepts and complete procedural solutions in a simulated surgical environment.
