Reseachers have developed robotic Trunk Support Trainer (TruST) that helps children with CP to sit more stably.
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.
Scientists are using a custom robot to survey how mutations in regulatory regions of the genome affect animal development.
Scientists have made a breakthrough in their work to develop semi-autonomous colonoscopy, using a robot to guide a medical device into the body.
Researchers have developed a robotic exoskeleton that improves the lives of people with limited or no ability to move due to neurological and/or physiological disorders.
Researchers at the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, have introduced a novel tool for generating accurate endoscopic datasets.
Researchers have found a way to send tiny, soft robots into humans, potentially opening the door for less invasive surgeries and ways to deliver treatments for several conditions.
Researchers have developed an robotic system to enhance the safety and efficacy of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancer.
Researchers have developed a revolutionary cortical vision device that could one day help restore vision to the blind.
Researchers have published the results of a trial of the ReWalk ReStore soft robotic exosuit for gait training in individuals undergoing post-stroke rehabilitation.
Researchers havee repurposed robotic technology normally used for synthetic biology research to help with testing for COVID-19.
Loss of strength and muscle wastage is currently an unavoidable part of getting older and has a significant impact on health and quality of life.
Researchers have developed a surgical robot that improves precision and control of teleoperated surgical procedures.
Robotic surgery for patients with early stage, oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer is associated with improved health outcomes, including better long-term survival.
Although true “cyborgs” — part human, part robotic beings — are science fiction, researchers are taking steps toward integrating electronics with the body.
avateramedical GmbH announced the acquisition of FORWARDttc GmbH, an automation technology company with special focus on robotics hard- and software.
A new robotic system allows medical staff to remotely operate ventilators and other bedside machines from outside intensive care rooms of patients suffering from infectious diseases.
Exoskeletons are one technology with great potential - but is often developed for average people. So what about people who are small and thin, or tall and overweight?
