Project Details & Features

A collaboration between Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University Medical Center, the Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering (VISE) researches and develops new integrations between computer science and surgical robotics. Seeking to support this valuable professor-physician-student collaboration, their research lab was renovated with innovative Symbiote product. This project includes development labs, machine room and mock OR and wet lab areas.

Height adjustable 4-Legged tables feature aesthetically pleasing and durable hardwood surfaces with surface mounted electrical plug strips. Below surface mobile lab cabinets increase access to lab equipment and materials. Symbiote-provided ceiling service panels and a new Unistrut ceiling grid provide a support structure for mounting robotics equipment and other technology within the open lab.

In the development labs, identical task-oriented rooms feature height adjustable tables and open shelving.
Epoxy surfaces on sink base cabinets and tables allow for easy sanitization and cleanability in the mock operating room and wet lab areas.
Symbiote 4-Legged Tables support medical equipment and a 3D printer in the machine room.
