BEIJING -- Chinese haptic robotics startup Intelligent Haptronic Solutions has raised several million yuan in an angel round from Aplus Labs and Initial Science Value Investment, 36Kr has learned.

A shortage of skilled doctors and surgeons is a big challenge at Chinese hospitals. To solve the problem, IHS developed training robots for gastrointestinal endoscopic surgeries.
