There are three adaptations we are watching closely at Aethon since we believe they are a trend and may become more permanent. These adaptations will have a significant influence specifically on the use of automation and autonomous mobile robotics.
There have been talks of surgical robots since as early as 1985. While the medical sector has taken significant steps since then to implement such technology, major barriers are still evident.
Drones offer some promising solutions to some of our perennial public challenges. We'll take a look at a few key areas in which they're already starting to make a difference across various community issues.
ATX West, MD&M, Plastic West, West Pack and Design & Manufacturing take place in Anaheim, CA February 11th - 13th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
Physical therapists are crucial to the design, development, and the operation of sensing technologies and robotic interfaces. Physical therapists are proactive partners, who work with engineers to encourage discoveries that will enhance best practice principles for patients.
The start-up company NISI (HK) Limited is currently developing a miniature surgical robot that can be inserted though natural openings in the body and only unfolds inside the abdomen.
• Mobile and autonomous YuMi® laboratory robot will be designed to work alongside medical staff and lab workers • New robotics technologies will be developed in ABB's first global healthcare research hub at Texas Medical Center (TMC) Innovation Institute in Houston
At its core, the Coapt Gen2 system uses algorithmic pattern classification to determine wearers' intuitive, real-time intent for moving the joints of a prosthetic arm and/or hand.
Backed by True Ventures and Ubiquity Ventures, the Austin-based robotics company is announcing its first full-time hospital customer implementing the robot full-time
Finding a way to more efficiently train our surgical teams and gain insight into their technical ability is paramount to optimizing patient safety and value.
Our concentration is to develop a surgical robot to go where it is needed the most, bringing the best competencies to where the injury happened. After all, if we can pilot a drone we should be able to operate a surgical robot.
ABB's research team will work on the TMC campus with medical staff, scientists and engineers to develop non-surgical medical robotics systems, including logistics and next-generation automated laboratory technologies.
Stereotaxis Robotic Magnetic Navigation (RMN) enables physicians to better perform cardiac ablation procedures (the least invasive type of heart surgery) by providing unprecedented catheter precision and stability inside the delicate tissue of a beating heart.
Technological advances in robotic surgery allow for more complicated, less invasive procedures to be performed, which is helping cancer patients who previously may have needed invasive, risky surgeries.
By using robot arms controlled through a computer, surgeons are now able to perform small incision surgeries that are minimally invasive and offer an improved level of precision.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
