For the first time, a steerable catheter will give neurosurgeons the ability to steer the device in any direction they want while navigating the brain's arteries and blood vessels.
A study shows that magnetic millirobots can climb slopes, move against fluid flow and precisely deliver substances to neural tissue.
Engineers have unveiled an air-powered computer memory that can be used to control soft robots. It overcomes the problem of the mismatch between pneumatics and electronics.
Researchers have shown that a group of small autonomous, self-learning robots can adapt easily to changing circumstances. They connected the simple robots in a line, after which each individual robot taught itself to move forward as quickly as possible.
Researchers have developed “electronic skin” sensors capable of mimicking the dynamic process of human motion.
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.
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.
