A new distance record for medical drone transport

A new distance record for medical drone transport
Johns Hopkins researchers have set a new delivery distance record for medical drones, successfully transporting human blood samples across 161 miles of Arizona desert. Throughout the three-hour flight, they report, the on-board payload system maintained temperature control, ensuring the samples were viable for laboratory analysis after landing.

Renishaw robot makes guest appearance in BBC drama

Renishaw robot makes guest appearance in BBC drama
  Did you spot Renishaw's neuromate stereotactic robot that featured in an episode of the BBC drama Holby City? During the episode, neuromate assists with the treatment of an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) patient who undergoes a stereotactic Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) procedure.

Artificial skin allows robotic hand to sense touch

Artificial skin allows robotic hand to sense touch
A team of researchers from the University of Houston has reported a breakthrough in stretchable electronics that can serve as an artificial skin, allowing a robotic hand to sense the difference between hot and cold, while also offering advantages for a wide range of biomedical devices. The work, reported in the journal Science Advances, describes a new mechanism for producing stretchable electronics, a process that relies upon readily available materials and could be scaled up for commercial production.

Robotic system is capable of monitoring specific neurons

Robotic system is capable of monitoring specific neurons
Recording electrical signals from inside a neuron in the living brain can reveal a great deal of information about that neuron’s function and how it coordinates with other cells in the brain. However, performing this kind of recording is extremely difficult. To make this technique more widely available, MIT engineers have now devised a way to automate the process, using a computer algorithm that analyses microscope images and guides a robotic arm to the target cell.

Robotic training improves walking in children with CP

Robotic training improves walking in children with CP
A team led by Sunil Agrawal, professor of mechanical engineering and of rehabilitation and regenerative medicine at Columbia Engineering, has published a pilot study in Science Robotics that demonstrates a robotic training method that improves posture and walking in children with crouch gait by enhancing their muscle strength and coordination.

'Smart' robot technology improves stroke rehab

'Smart' robot technology improves stroke rehab
Scientists say they have developed a 'smart' robotic harness that might make it easier for people to learn to walk again after a stroke or spinal cord injury. The harness, the researchers said, can be fine-tuned to individual patients to help them find a more natural walking pattern as they go through rehabilitation. In early tests with 26 patients recovering from a spinal cord injury or stroke, the technology looked promising, according to a new report.

Robots can help children with autism

Robots can help children with autism
Research involving the University of Portsmouth is aiming to develop robots to help children with autism in ways humans can't. The Development of Robot-Enhanced therapy for children with AutisM spectrum disorders (DREAM) project will design robots that can operate autonomously and help the therapist to improve the child's social interaction skills, such as turn-taking, imitation and joint attention.

Computer model simulates sense of touch

Computer model simulates sense of touch
Neuroscientists from the University of Chicago have developed a computer model that can simulate the response of nerves in the hand to any pattern of touch stimulation on the skin. The tool reconstructs the response of more than 12,500 nerve fibres with millisecond precision, taking into account the mechanics of the skin as it presses up against and moves across objects. The software will allow scientists to see how entire populations of nerve fibres respond when we interact with objects.
