Pioneering the Next Generation of Robotics with the Biomimetic 'Melissa Robot'

The Human Gait will be Perfected Artificially Within 5 Years

5 Ways Robotics Is Revolutionizing Heath Care

With a reach growing far greater than factory floors, robots will continue to aid and assist wherever needed. Here are five of the medical applications for robots in use today.

North American-Made Robot Travels Under Iconic George Street in Scotland Repairing Gas Infrastructure without Disruption

US-Based ULC Robotics' CISBOT Robot is Deployed Underground for UK Gas Utility SGN

Robotic Technology Utilized to Repair and Prevent Gas Line Leaks in Brooklyn, New York, Infrastructure

ULC Robotics Inc.'s CISBOT technology is being used to make critical repairs in live cast iron gas mains without excavations and cessations of service.

Sealed Air Acquires Assets from Intellibot Robotics

Sealed Air Corporation creates a world that feels, tastes and works better.

Is A Sperm Robot Coming To You?

Single-cell management has traditionally been accomplished with pipettes, optical tweezers, or specialized small volume designs. Now, other bio-inspired methods rely on controlling applied magnetic forces, such as the wireless control of microrobots.

3-D Human Tissue Printing

The bioprinting revolution could eventually begin to deliver "tissue on demand." This might not be the cure-all; but for many patients, it might prove to be life-changing.

Case Study: Miltenyi Biotec, Cell Analyzers with 2D Barcode Readers

Autolabeling of samples and barcode detection of MACS Antibodies using the Quadrus MINI help streamline and optimize the workflow in laboratories. Handling is made extremely easy and this saves the researchers valuable time.

Interview With Martin Buehler, Vice President of Logistics Solutions, Vecna Medical

Hospitals, clinics, providers and other end users should engage with the robot vendor closely and early on as a partner. Among other things, this allows both parties to identify the highest value applications, some of which may not have been apparent at the outset.

Future Concepts and the ExoHand

Festo's ExoHand is an exoskeleton that can be worn like a glove, combining smart features invented by the engineers with the smart and flexible solutions from nature. The fingers can be actively moved and their strength amplified; the operator's hand movements are registered and transmitted to the robotic hand in real time.

Doctor Robot at Your Service

Future robots might incorporate the ability for a surgeon to program the surgery and just supervise the procedure, as the robot performs most of the tasks. The possibilities for improvement and advancement are only limited by imagination and cost.

New Medical Technology Saving Lives

Most of the medical advances that we have seen have been with pharmaceuticals, as drug companies compete to introduce new more effective drugs because the patents on many blockbuster drugs are about to expire. But the coolest advances have to do with medical equipment. The age of high-tech medicine is here with even greater advances in development.
