Once the destination is reached, it controls a robotic unit by giving the most appropriate real-time commands in its existing situation, thus delivering devices such as guidewire to the destination in the most efficient way.We're open to any candidates who are excited to apply their knowledge and skill in deep learning to real-world medical data and surgery robots.

Plcoskin’s scaffolds are made with synthetic PCL, a biodegradable material that iscommonly used to create surgical sutures. Unlike competitors' products that remain in the body for a lifetime, Plcoskin’s PCL scaffolds are absorbed and replaced with the recipient’s own natural tissues, minimizing the possibility of long-term side effects. As they do not contain any dangerous chemicals, they are also 50% safer than cadaver-sourced scaffolds.Costs for reconstructive breast surgery are brought down by 40% to only $3 thousand per breast. Furthermore, much less handling time is required, reducing average surgery durations from an hour and a half to only 30 minutes. The mesh design of the scaffolds mitigates the need for an additional follow-up reconstructive surgery, something that is common when using cadaver-sourced scaffolds.Plcoskin has also developed Youlief, a cosmeceutical product & therapeutic device pipeline that helps fund R&D for their medical devices. Youlief is available in the US, Europe, Taiwan, Singapore and Japan.
