Video games offer students obvious respite from the stresses of studies and, now, a study has found they could benefit surgical skills training.
Professor Dr Henning Windhagen is a great fan of semi-automatic systems in the OR that help with implants but leave the surgeon in the driver’s seat.
In 2032, a man lies critically injured on a remote road following a car accident. His life is in the balance, but data visualization, remote robotics, biofabrication and virtual care will combine to give him the best possible chance of survival.
Dr Jan Stallkamp, Professor for Automation in Healthcare and Biotechnology, has a vision: robots that can treat patients more efficiently and more precisely than any human physician.
Researchers have developed a minuscule robot that could revolutionize surgical procedures for treating prostate cancer.
The patch, which can be folded around surgical tools, may someday be used in robotic surgery to repair tissues and organs.
Researchers at the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, have introduced a novel tool for generating accurate endoscopic datasets.
Artificial intelligence is developing at an enormous speed and intelligent instruments will profoundly change surgery and medical interventions.
One of the crucial future technologies in surgery is Augmented Reality. Most experts agree that AR will increase safety and efficiency, improve surgical training and decrease costs.
In the next-generation operating room interconnected sensors will collect data, analyse it in real-time and make it available to digital assistance functions.
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.
avateramedical GmbH announced the acquisition of FORWARDttc GmbH, an automation technology company with special focus on robotics hard- and software.
