The Fourth Healthcare Revolution - Digital Technologies Are Driving a New Frontier in Medical Treatment

Healthcare has a long way to go before it reaches the level of digitalisation the manufacturing industry possesses. However, this slower pace doesn't mean digitalisation isn't already beginning to show its benefits in the medical sector.

How Robotic Technology Can Mitigate COVID-19

No matter how expertly designed or rigorously tested, every robot is bound to encounter edge cases at some point or another. How the issues are handled and how field ops are done, determines the longevity of the robot system or product.

Human Nurses and Robotic Nurses: A Symbiotic Relationship

Understanding the opportunities created by robotics in healthcare and why human nurses can never be replaced, is significant if both are to work in tandem to complement the tasks performed daily.

How Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Improve Patient Care

By working in tandem with AI and robotics in healthcare, humans can deliver a higher quality of care for patients in very measurable ways.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

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.
