Machine learning network offers personalised autism therapy

Machine learning network offers personalised autism therapy
Children with autism spectrum conditions often have trouble recognising the emotional states of people around them — distinguishing a happy face from a fearful face, for instance. To remedy this, some therapists use a kid-friendly robot to demonstrate those emotions and to engage the children in imitating the emotions and responding to them in appropriate ways.

‘E-dermis’ brings sense of touch and pain to prosthetic hands

‘E-dermis’ brings sense of touch and pain to prosthetic hands
Amputees often experience the sensation of a 'phantom limb'—a feeling that a missing body part is still there. That sensory illusion is closer to becoming a reality thanks to a team of engineers at the Johns Hopkins University that has created an electronic skin. When layered on top of prosthetic hands, this e-dermis brings back a real sense of touch through the fingertips.

Five technologies that are improving the healthcare system

Five technologies that are improving the healthcare system
  Healthcare has so many applications for the latest technology. Now that Electronic Health Records (EHR) have been implemented in over 95% of hospitals in the incentive programme, it’s easier for hospitals to leverage patient data, implement new technology, and improve patient outcomes.

AI revolution within the NHS could make ‘bedside robots’ a reality

AI revolution within the NHS could make ‘bedside robots’ a reality
A new report looking into improving the sustainability of the NHS, published by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) and Lord Darzi, former health minister, predicts an AI revolution within the NHS is nigh and claims AI robots could save the NHS £12.5bn a year.

Smart surgical robot makes light work of ear implants

Smart surgical robot makes light work of ear implants
Patients having ear implants could have safer surgery with a hand-held robotic drill so sensitive it can drill through an eggshell and stop before reaching the membrane. Every year about 700 people in the UK have cochlear implants to help them hear when hearing aids can’t help. Surgeons have to train for 10 years to do the intricate procedure, where they drill through bone, into the middle ear and into the cochlea. And if bone dust enters the cochlea, it can damage balance.

Modular robotic surgery systems for underserved countries

Modular robotic surgery systems for underserved countries
Despite decades of successful robotic-assisted surgeries in the US that have positively impacted millions of patients, there is still limited access to this technology in developing countries. The reason, according to Dr. Sudhir Srivastava, founder and CEO of SS Innovations (SSI), is related to the affordability and complexity of existing robotic surgery systems. These are the challenges that SSI is tackling head-on.

Preparing for the surgical robot boom

Preparing for the surgical robot boom
With greater investment from healthcare organisations and surgical robot technology about to become generic, the conditions are perfect for a boom in the surgical robotics market. But how can design engineers and technical medical staff ensure these new systems operate reliably and safely? Michele Windsor, global marketing manager at surgical robot battery manufacturer Accutronics, has a solution.

Ultrasound-powered nanorobots clear bacteria and toxins from blood

Ultrasound-powered nanorobots clear bacteria and toxins from blood
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed tiny ultrasound-powered robots that can swim through blood, removing harmful bacteria along with the toxins they produce. These proof-of-concept nanorobots could one day offer a safe and efficient way to detoxify and decontaminate biological fluids. Researchers built the nanorobots by coating gold nanowires with a hybrid of platelet and red blood cell membranes.

Robotic ultrasound system receives FDA clearance

Robotic ultrasound system receives FDA clearance
Neural Analytics has announced that it received FDA 510(k) clearance for its NeuralBot System, a robotic assistance technology which automatically adjusts orientation and position of its ultrasound products under the guidance of a healthcare professional. When used with its previously cleared Lucid M1 Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound System, can assist clinicians to non-invasively monitor a patient’s brain blood flow characteristics and can provide information to diagnose a variety of neurological disorders.
