Under Martin’s leadership, Impington-based CMR Surgical has developed the revolutionary Versius robot for minimal access surgery, which will aid recovery times and lead to long-term savings in healthcare.

Judges commended him for “building his product and proving his idea”, which has disupted the surgical robotics market - currently led by a company producing a much larger and more expensive machine.

Pointing to the challenges ahead, they added: “Martin will need to prove he can commercialise his product and can scale at the rate needed.”

CMR Surgical is a company to watch as their technology has the potential to revolutionise surgery procedures for many patients.”
