KG Legal will participate in the International “Medical Robots 2016” conference that will be held on 9th-10th December 2016 in Zabrze. The conference is organized by the International Society for Medical Robotics and the Professor Zbigniew Religa Foundation of Cardiac Surgery Development.
The pioneer of the development of cardiac surgery in Poland was professor Zbigniew Religa, who performed the first successful heart transplant in Poland after several failed attempts. To describe how hard it was, because of the outdated equipment and lack of funds we can present you this photograph taken by James Stansfield that shows Religa keeping watch on the vital signs of a patient after a 23 hour heart surgery. The bloody mess, tangled cables and the Religa’s assistant sleeping in the corner – all of these things make this photo so special, that National Geographic chose this as the best picture of 1987 and it is considered as one of the most iconic photos in history.
During the conference a progress of surgery robot Robin Heart project development will be demonstrated. Robin Heart is a Polish surgical robot constructed by scientist from the Professor Zbigniew Religa Foundation of Cardiac Surgery Development.
The information was prepared by Kamil Trzaskoś of KG Legal Polish Law Firm. KG Legal provides specialised legal assistance to IT, Life Science as well as investment processes in Poland and organises networking between Polish and international companies and research centres.
