Perfint Healthcare

Perfint Healthcare makes Maxio, a guided robotic system that helps take doctors through cancer diagnostics, pain care, and surgeries. It can do things such as find exactly where to place a needle in a tumor more accurately than even a human doctor could. The robots have been wheeled around about 1,500 hospitals around the world so far.
