Competition Overview

As the healthcare industry is still recovering from our modern history's most intensive stress test, BEST believes that advances in technology and innovation will continue to improve proficiency and quality in the future of medical care. Minimally invasive surgery is one such advancement that is taking hold in surgery rooms throughout the world. Extending a surgeon’s abilities through robotics allows complex surgeries with minimal invasiveness to the patient. Robots enter the body through small incisions and aid the surgeon in performing some otherwise complex tasks requiring great precision. These robots become the eyes and hands of the surgeon, allowing very delicate operations to take place inside the body.

This year's contest field simulated the human body and our robots were tasked with performing simulations of these intricate, life-saving operations.
