The Sant'Anna BioRobotics Institute in Pisa is a prestigious hub for research. Engineers from Sant'Anna actively cooperated with a team from EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, lit. Polytechnic Federal School of Lausanne) to developed the revolutionary invention of a robotic hand sensitive to senses.

In 2013 a prototype of this technology was tested at the General Hospital Gemelli in Rome.
