Operating Room of the Future Lab


Encouraging multi-disciplinary and rapid innovation.

The ‘Operating Room of the Future’ (ORF) Lab (2012) is a way to continually innovate across the entire spectrum of OR systems. This approach allows us to define, develop, teach and communicate leading edge technologies, processes and environments as progressively as new forms of surgery emerge. The ORF lab is the R&D component of the ORF Initiative.

Under the umbrella of the ORF Initiative there are many areas worth investigating. From training simulations to newly developed display technologies, the ORF Lab is concerned with exploring the areas undergoing the most change and having the largest impact on the OR experience.
