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.

Soft Multi-functional Robots Get Really Small

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.

Ultra-Short Pulse Lasers Are Great Tools for Processing Plastics for Medical Devices

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.

Argon Medical Addresses High Labor Costs and Productivity with MiR Robot

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.

Neuroscientists Create Prosthetics to Help Amputees Feel Again

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.

Carnegie Mellon Designs Low-cost, High-Efficiency 3D Bioprinter

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.

Robotic Technology Goes Beyond Automation

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.

Advancement of Robots in Medicine

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.

What's Driving Investments in Surgical Robots?

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.

Lending A Hand - Or Four: How A New, Four-Arm Robot Will Forever Change Neurosurgery

Two hands are better than one, so consider how doubling that to four hands - with robotic steadiness - will forever change neurosurgery, and especially life-threatening blood clots and brain tumor resections.

How Robots Are Changing the Way We Do Surgery

As we see more widespread acceptance for robots in general, we'll likely see even more automation in health care - but some of it is already here.

Investing in Robotics

The sub-group of surgical robotics is the fastest growing area of robotic and automation adoption in the healthcare industry. We now have the ability to perform surgery with a higher level of accuracy than ever before and even perform surgeries in remote locations

Has a French firm finally achieved the holy grail of robotics?

Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The biomechanics of bipedal walking are preposterously complex. A French firm claims to have built a robotic suit that can emulate the way we walk.

Four Robotic Adoption Tips Manufacturers Can Learn From Medical Industries

Since the medical and manufacturing industries both handle sensitive materials, the shift to having robots handle them instead can save lives and cut costs.

Implementing Robots in Healthcare

The main drivers included improving productivity and efficiency, improving repeatability and consistency of processes, increasing operations capacity, increasing operational agility and flexibility, reducing labor costs, and increasing speed of operations.

IntervalZero’s RTX64

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
