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.
While the obvious benefit of robotic technology is to automate business processes, there are an abundance of opportunities for robotic technology to improve the lives of humans without engaging in automation.
Robotic surgery is deemed by and large safer than open surgery. The hospital stay is shorter, reducing the risk of infection; pain and discomfort is reduced; recovery time is faster; and blood loss and transfusions are lessened.
Ideally, hospitals and clinics would be able to justify the cost of a new robot based on scientific studies on its effectiveness and business cases on its usability. But for new platforms, these are very scarce.

App Your Sensor®! What would smartphones be without apps? They would be mobile phones that can't do much more than make phone calls and sending SMS. Apps turn smartphones into intelligent assistants with any number of different tasks. Transferred into the world of image processing, this app-based approach transforms cameras and sensors into customised, smart vision sensors.
