Typically found hanging from the ceiling of an operating suite, an octodoc is so called because it consists of between six and twelve limbs emerging from a center anchor. Each limb typically ends in a surgical tool or generic manipulator. Rooted in telepresence systems for remote surgery, octodocs eventually became autonomous, capable of specifically requested surgeries, or performing their own diagnostics. Like Kleenex and Band-Aids, octodocs are actually a brand, but have also become a generic name for any multi-limbed surgery robot.
Octodocs have been rendered largely obsolete by medichines and healing vats.

Plot Hook: An octodoc recently cut itself from the ceiling with a bone saw, worked its way to a neighboring room containing an unconscious mafia lieutenant, and then killed him with scalpels and surgical lasers. High g-rep will be rewarded to anyone who can trace the hack and eliminate the hacker.
