Robot gives injections for elderly with retinal disease

Robot gives injections for elderly with retinal disease
  Patients with age-related retinal disease need regular injections in the eye. At the moment, these must be given by specially trained medical doctors, but a robot may well handle this task in the near future.

Neuromate stereotactic robot installed in Ontario

Neuromate stereotactic robot installed in Ontario
Renishaw has announced the first neuromate stereotactic robot in Canada has been installed in the LHSC in London, Ontario. The first neuromate assisted neurosurgical procedure performed in Canada was a Stereo-electroencephalography (SEEG) case, a procedure which uses intracerebral electrodes to measure electrical signals within the brain. The aim of this type of surgery is to identify which area of the brain is generating the sudden bursts of electrical signals which cause epileptic seizures.

Drones can increase survival from cardiac arrest

Drones can increase survival from cardiac arrest
Research from the Centre for Resuscitation Science at Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm South General (Söder) Hospital in Sweden shows that a specially constructed drone equipped with a defibrillator can be dispatched by alarm and delivered automatically to the site of a cardiac arrest long before an ambulance arrives. The results are published in the respected medical periodical JAMA.

Robots play a key role in hearing aid production

Robots play a key role in hearing aid production
The components used in the production of hearing aids are extremely small and are getting more minuscule as technology develops, and therefore, manufacturer of the devices, Oticon, required a more flexible robot, which was provided by Universal Robots, to handle these components in its production.

'Proprioceptive' feedback tests prosthetic hand

'Proprioceptive' feedback tests prosthetic hand
Engineers working to add 'muscle sense' to prosthetic limbs found that tactile feedback on the skin allowed blindfolded test subjects to more than double their ability to discern the size of objects grasped with a prosthetic hand. The results will be presented next month in Germany by researchers from Rice University and the Research Center 'E.Piaggio' of the University of Pisa and the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT).

Robot assisted surgery makes its debut at Welsh hospital

Robot assisted surgery makes its debut at Welsh hospital
A robotic assisted stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) neurosurgery procedure has been successfully completed at the University Hospital of Wales with help from engineering and scientific technology company Renishaw. This landmark procedure, which identified the source for epileptic seizures, coincided with BioWales, an annual conference, which celebrates Wales’ position as a global pioneer in the life science sector.

High-precision surgical robot aids cochlear implantation

High-precision surgical robot aids cochlear implantation
A team of surgeons and engineers of Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, and the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research, University of Bern, have developed a high-precision surgical robot for cochlear implantation. In the same way that avionics allow a pilot to fly a plane by instrument solely based on read-outs from the cockpit, the surgical robot developed by the researchers for RCI has the capabilities to perform surgery that a surgeon cannot carry out manually without a robot.
