Researchers have developed a surgical robot that improves precision and control of teleoperated surgical procedures.
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.
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?
Engineers have designed and developed a novel humanoid hand that may be able to help.
Researchers have developed robotic prosthetic legs which use motors that were originally designed for use on the robotic arm of the ISS.
Designed by a team at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and an institute of the Max Planck Society, the four-legged, dog-sized, torque-controlled Solo 8 robot can easily be replicated by research labs around the world.
Researchers have developed a system for integrating artificial chip-based 'neurons' with real neurons using QR-code-like patterns of light to facilitate communication.
