Cambridge Consultants Using Nano Silk 30D In Cataract Eye Surgery

So we have had Semperfli Nano Silk used for many different things because of its amazing strength from Kite strings to fly fishing leaders and even used for a Space Sail being designed for Nasa. However yesterday we found a new use with Cambridge Consultants using Nano Silk in Cataract Surgery. Here’s what Chris has to Say:

“I just wanted to pass on a note about the use of Nano Silk – we just had our open day yesterday where we show off our technical capabilities (we’re product developers) and we successfully demonstrated a prototype surgical robot concept for cataract surgery that used Nano Silk at it’s core. It’s a tiny thing – 1.8 mm outer diameter flexing robot, with a 1mm inner diameter working channel, leaving very little room for mechanical pull cables. We threaded the 110 um diameter Nano Silk (18/0, I believe) through 150 um holes. And, it worked! Very pleased with the material.”

Its amazing the different places that Semperfli Nano Silk is Appearing, from flies to space and into eyes!
