TOP 20 PROMISING STARTUP
MatrixLabs was selected as one of Global Top 20 promising startup companies by StartUs insights in 2023
MATRIXLabs enables Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Suturing
Taiwanese startup MATRIXLabs develops solutions for minimally invasive surgery, specifically laparoscopic suturing and knotting. The startup’s LapKnot is an instrument-assisted device that enables easy and consistent intracorporeal knotting with various sutures. It also provides Calypso, an instrument-free device that reduces the complexity of knotting without compromising effectiveness and strength. The startup also develops Singer, an automated device that integrates needle passing and knotting in one single instrument for single port surgery. These procedures require greater manual dexterity and are hence a barrier to the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries. MATRIXLabs’ solutions enable doctors and surgeons to transform laparoscopic suturing into a safer and more efficient procedure.
Inspired from 40+ years of clinical practices and perspectives, the concept and study of LapKnot, the instrument-assisted knotting innovation, had been proved and published in numbers of international surgical journals. The surgical professionals from MATRIXLabs Medical will continuously contribute to the entire surgical community.
"SURGICAL ENDOSCOPIC" BY SPRINGER
Laparoscopic intracorporeal knot tying has traditionally been considered the most difficult skill in laparoscopic surgery. We developed a novel device for assisting laparoscopic intracorporeal knotting that transforms a pre-tied slip knot into a secure double sheet bend. The aim of this study is to check the feasibility of using this novel device to assist in performing laparoscopic knot tying.
"SURGEON AT WORK" BY AMERICAN COLLEGE OF SURGEONS
To further simplify
the procedure of intracorporeal suturing and knotting, we
renewed our original device design and developed a novel
advanced tubule-assisted knotting device that integrates
intracorporeal suturing and knotting into a single procedure. This study evaluated the efficacy and feasibility of using this novel device to speed up and ease the
task of performing laparoscopic suturing and knotting.
"SURGICAL LAPAROSCOPY ENDOSCOPY & PERCUTANEOUS TECHNIQUES" BY LWW
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of a novel pusher device for performing extracorporeal knot tying.
