Robotic Arm to Aid with Mental Health Treatment

TMS is approved for mental health treatment in Canada and has had promising results treating illnesses such as depression and schizophrenia.

Rogue wanted to explore a robotic solution to complement their existing software and improve the accuracy of TMS treatment.

Nicholas began researching how to develop a robotic arm that could be produced inexpensively and used in clinical settings - features not readily available with existing robotic arms.

Ultimately, Rogue and Nicholas determined that manufacturing a robotic arm in-house would be too expensive, so they’re now exploring the project with a local robotics company.

“Now I’m working on a variety of projects with Rogue Research, including a surgical robot for small animals. Accelerate has allowed me to apply my interest in robotics to an industry challenge - now I’m working on several.”
