1. Bertin Nahum and incredible surgical robot
In Benin origin, born in Senegal and immigrated to France with his first age, Bertin Nahum became interested in robotics from the University, as indicated in their schooling. He then developed a passion for medical engineering, hence the idea of creating a robot that would assist surgeons in their various operations. But risky bet won. In 2002, he founded Medtech. The first surgical robot he designed is called BRIGIT specialized in assistance in knee surgery, bought a few years later by ZIMMER Inc, the giant of orthopedic surgery. Bertin Nahum then embarks on a larger project. The design of Brain Rosa, his first robot dedicated to neurosurgery.Sharp diseases such as epilepsy, hydrocephalus, Parkinson’s disease are carried out through this technology, invented by the Beninese Bertin Nahum.In all, the robot Brain Rosa has contributed to nearly 2,000 operations, all successful. No wonder Bertin Nahum is ranked fourth place among the most revolutionary entrepreneurs of the world.
