Decoding robotic surgery skills

Decoding robotic surgery skills
Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC are looking to technology to help deconstruct expert surgeons' robotic surgery skills so they can create an objective, standardised way to train the next generation of surgeons. Using a data recorder plugged into a robotic surgery system, the team analysed expert and novice surgeons' movements during the reconstruction step of robotic radical prostatectomy, a common surgery for prostate cancer.

K-FLEX: a flexible endoscopic surgical robot

K-FLEX: a flexible endoscopic surgical robot
K-FLEX, a flexible endoscopic surgical robot developed by the KAIST Future Medical Robotics Research Center, opens a new chapter for minimally invasive robot-assisted surgery with its precision control of 3.7mm diameter robotic arms. The two arms, placing at the end of flexible endoscopes, highlight impeccable precision control and robust mini-joint design technologies. While cruising through the complicated inner body pliably, it carries out procedures on the spot with its robotic arms.

Nanoparticle swarms to deliver medical therapies across body

Nanoparticle swarms to deliver medical therapies across body
A new way to control the collective movement of nano-robots has been developed by a research team led by Prof. Li ZHANG, Associate Professor of the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). The team has studied and implemented swarm behaviors on nano-robots, allowing controlled morphological changes and splitting.

Avatar uses gait to predict how many calories you will burn

Avatar uses gait to predict how many calories you will burn
Avatar-based software developed at EPFL looks at how people walk in order to predict their energy expenditure. The software, originally intended for roboticists and for researchers who develop prosthetics and exoskeletons, could have many uses in both medicine and sports. It can be tested online through a downloadable app. Humans instinctively adopt the gait that requires the least amount of energy given the walking conditions.

Drone flights deliver medical supplies in Puerto Rico

Drone flights deliver medical supplies in Puerto Rico
AT&Thas taken part in a proof of concept with Softbox to test connected medical payloads carried by drones. The goal? Successfully and safely deliver temperature-sensitive medicines using drones. An LTE-connected drone carrying Softbox’s thermal-insulated packaging system 'Skypod,' which includes a smartbox powered by AT&T’s Internet of Things (IoT) technology, successfully completed demonstration flights.

Nanobot pumps destroy nerve agents

Nanobot pumps destroy nerve agents
Once in the territory of science fiction, 'nanobots' are closer than ever to becoming a reality, with possible applications in medicine, manufacturing, robotics and fluidics. Today, scientists report progress in developing the tiny machines: They have made nanobot pumps that destroy nerve agents, while simultaneously administering an antidote. The researchers will present their results at the 256th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
