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.
Robots - we can't live with them and we can't live without them. Some potential applications of robotics are strange but ultimately very promising, while others seem downright pointless.
This technology has the potential to minimise those risks by performing a key part of the operation with accuracy which cannot be achieved by a human hand.
Therapy with the suite of InMotion upper extremity products guides patients through specific tasks, aiming to improve motor control of the arm by increasing strength, range of motion and coordination.
By having robots perform the job of human hands, the process of getting a new drug to market is significantly improved. Having a robot do the work can ensure accuracy and repeatability across multiple trials
Robotic devices for clinical rehabilitation of patients with neurological impairments come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and employ different kinds of actuators.
Funded by a five-year, $3.5 million NIH grant, the academic-industry partnership aims to develop an MRI-compatible robotic technology to provide minimally invasive brain tumor therapy that is ready for clinical trials.
We are targeting those industries that require precise, small, high-torque motors and complementary components such as high precision planetary gearboxes, slip rings, sensors and encoders.
By working in tandem with AI and robotics in healthcare, humans can deliver a higher quality of care for patients in very measurable ways.
A new approach for fabricating soft materials at the millimeter scale paves the way to a new generation of flexible microrobots for medical and environmental tasks.
In the past few years, we have found that ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers are being used more and more for medical device manufacturing - from stents and catheters, to wire stripping and balloon texturing.
The company has turned to collaborative automation to help it compete in this high-cost labor market, while preserving jobs for its skilled, long-term employees.
The most recent prosthetics can stimulate the nerves so that when a person comes in contact with something, they feel sensation with help from electrical impulses.
We have already made exciting advances to date, with the ability to print biological materials and cells with unprecedented resolution and fidelity. Put simply, we can do more than print something that looks cool-we can 3D print tissues that actually work.
