Canadian Space Agency (CSA)

The Canadian Space Agency has worked with Dr. Mehran Anvari and CSii on the research and development of IGAR surgical devices, which leverage Canadian space technology originally developed for the Canadarm, Canadarm2 and Dextre.

With the benefit of a Build in Canada (BCIP) CSA is currently working with CSii to ensure that a new generation of IGAR technology will increase access to healthcare by providing IGAR with telerobotic capabilities which will enable Canadians living in remote areas of the country to receive access to advanced medical care.

CSii and CSA will continue to work together to develop new autonomous devices that will one day serve and protect astronauts as they explore new worlds and utilize space technology to revolutionize healthcare here on earth.
