Robots Assisting with Physical Therapy

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 Surgical Robot that Unfolds Inside the Abdomen

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.

ABB demonstrates concept of mobile laboratory robot for Hospital of the Future

• 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

Next-Gen Control System for Prosthetics

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.

Diligent Robotics Announces Market Launch of Moxi and $3M Seed Funding

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

Training Surgeons to Use Robotic Systems

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.

Bringing Robotic Surgery to Places Where Others Don't Want to Go

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 Robotics to Develop Solutions for the Hospital of the Future

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.

Treating Heart Disease with Robotic Precision and Safety

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.

Robotics in Cancer Surgery

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.

Surgical Robots and Their Rapid Adoption in Minimally Invasive 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 Strangest Reasons We've Seen Robots Engineered For So Far

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.

Robots to Perform Spinal Surgery With Pinpoint Accuracy

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.

Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services Purchasing Robots for Stroke Therapy

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.

Automation Advancing the Pharmaceutical Industry

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

 IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
