Global Robotics Specifications (GRS)

These courses/exams are for employees of GM and GM approved suppliers. Students registering under a company that is not approved by GM for participation will be dropped. If you are not an employee of an approved supplier, or to request additional information regarding this program, please contact Deb Lang.To get more news about Tompkins Robotics GRS, you can visit official website.

Registration closes three business days prior to section start date. Current GM Course/Exam Pricing. Please review the Refund Page for Macomb's policy on refunds.
Place-out certification exams are available if an individual feels proficient with the subject matter. Any student wishing to retake a place-out exam will need to re-register through our website at an additional charge. Students taking an exam along with an online course are allowed one re-take at no charge if section has not expired.

To enroll in online courses or exams, you need a webcam, microphone and the latest version of Google Chrome. Your exam will be proctored by recording the visual, audio and desktop aspects of your exam and exam environment. A hard copy or electronic version of the student manual is permitted during examination. You will receive an email with instructions on how to access the online course/online exam on the section start date. You must complete by the end date of your section as your access will be cancelled on that date. We do not have the flexibility to extend online access.

This study determined if robotic-arm assisted total knee arthroplasty (RATKA) allows for more accurate and precise bone cuts and component position to plan compared with manual total knee arthroplasty (MTKA). Specifically, we assessed the following: (1) final bone cuts, (2) final component position, and (3) a potential learning curve for RATKA. On six cadaver specimens (12 knees), a MTKA and RATKA were performed on the left and right knees, respectively. Bone-cut and final-component positioning errors relative to preoperative plans were compared. Median errors and standard deviations (SDs) in the sagittal, coronal, and axial planes were compared. Median values of the absolute deviation from plan defined the accuracy to plan. SDs described the precision to plan. RATKA bone cuts were as or more accurate to plan based on nominal median values in 11 out of 12 measurements. RATKA bone cuts were more precise to plan in 8 out of 12 measurements (p ≤ 0.05). RATKA final component positions were as or more accurate to plan based on median values in five out of five measurements. RATKA final component positions were more precise to plan in four out of five measurements (p ≤ 0.05). Stacked error results from all cuts and implant positions for each specimen in procedural order showed that RATKA error was less than MTKA error. Although this study analyzed a small number of cadaver specimens, there were clear differences that separated these two groups. When compared with MTKA, RATKA demonstrated more accurate and precise bone cuts and implant positioning to plan.
