iotaMotion lands $1.65M NIH grant to develop robotic cochlear implant tech

Robotic surgical technology developer iotaMotion announced that it received a $1.65 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Iowa City, Iowa-based iotaMotion said in a news release that it is using the grant funds to continue developing its real-time tissue trauma sensing technology in the iotaSoft robotic surgical system designed for assistance in cochlear implantation surgery.

The iotaSoft system is a robot-assisted insertion device designed to allow surgeons to advance cochlear implant electrodes with more control and precision, which the company believes will allow for less surgical variability.

In addition to the NIH grant, iotaMotion said it received the inaugural Iowa Biosciences Medtech Award. The $20,000 prize recognizes significant progress and investor support over the last year and has been earmarked for supporting regulatory and pre-commercialization efforts.

“These NIH funds will be used to advance technology…
