REM, which stands for “Rapid Electro-Mechanical”, is a small engineering development firm. We develop products, prototypes, one-off machines, and installation pieces for clients in a wide range of industries. Most of the devices we develop include a microcontroller and moving parts. Often, the microcontroller interfaces with sensors and actuators and communicates with one or more other devices.
REM developed several novel mechanisms for various handle prototype styles for these hand-held laparoscopic instruments. Novare was acquired in 2010.
