Bionics & Robotics

The fields of robotics and bionics have witnessed several advancements in recent years. We cover the latest technology breakthroughs of surgical robotics, bionic hearing and vision, of smart prosthetics, of micro-robots that travel through bodily fluids to deliver medication exactly to where it’s needed and the development of exoskeletons that help paralyzed people to walk again.
