About Us

SensOR puts the 'feeling' back into Surgery!


Our patent-pending Force-Sensing Film accurately measures the forces exerted on the tissue from Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) instruments for laparoscopic surgery. The forces detected by the Film are wirelessly relayed to the surgeon providing real-time force feedback and alerting when dangerous force levels have been reached. Our Force-Sensing Film can retrofit to any standard rigid MIS instrument itself.

Use of the Film aims to efficiently and effectively train surgical residents and increase surgical safety and the quality of care available during Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Surgical Safety
It is Our Motivation

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is quickly being adopted because of its reduction in surgical trauma compared to open surgery; however there are still issues associated with this improved surgical procedure. The main disadvantages are:

  • Lack of training or inexperience of surgeon.
  • Minimal feedback provided by the surgical endoscope camera view.
  • Deprived sense of touch increasing risk of accidental injury - leading to longer recovery time, hospital stays AND post-operative complications

The impact which these issues have on patient safety has motivated SensOR to develop the Force-Sensing Film to improve upon and/or eradicate each of these problems.


"Accurate knowledge of the amount of force being applied to tissue will allow surgeons to operate more accurately and safely with fewer complications.
....Currently, there are no force-sensing surgical instruments available today."

- Dr. Michael Hawke, MD
