Foundation Drive Phase 1 Phase 2 Results Core The Awesome Mr.Gower The Different Robots.. Medical Robots Information Commonly us for prostratectomies, cardiac valve repair and gynecologic procedures, the da Vinci medical robot is controlled remotely by a surgeon from a console, and is designed to perform highly complex surgeries using a minimally invasive approach. The surgeon maneuvers the system’s robotic arms while viewing a tiny, high-resolution endoscopic camera inserted through an incision. Information about the Da Vinci Surgical Robot ViRob Miniature Medical Robot In Israel,a miniature robot called ViRob was developed in order to crawl through the human body, locate a tumor, and treat it with drugs. Measuring only one millimeter long and four millimeters from end to end, the bot uses tiny arms controlled by an electromagnetic field to propel its way through different cavities of the human body, looking for deadly tumors to treat.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In many parts of the world, hospitals use robots for tasks that require precision and promptness, such as delivering and retrieving supplies and mixing and dispensing medicines. In Europe and the U.S., a robot is used to mix and measure medications, specifically those used in chemotherapy. Human mistakes in this process can be very deadly, as the slightest error in the mix could endanger both patients and the hospital staff. Using a robot thus removes the need for manual calculation and greatly reduces the possibility of human error. Puma Puma is the very first known medical robot used by the medical industry in 1985. When the robot PUMA 560 placed a needle for a brain biopsy using CT guidance. IV Robots At a medical center in Maryland, a robot named Mr. Gower navigates the hallways, riding elevators, opening doors and delivering patient medications to the nurses' station all on its own. Marc Summerfield, director of pharmacy services at the University of Maryland Medical Center says that Mr. Gower can “pull up to 500 lbs and can work for 12 hours after charging its batteries for only two hours.” He says that aside from filling the gap created by staff shortages, the robot helps them deliver medications to their patients faster Mr.Gower Puma Da Vinci Surgical Robot ViRob Miniature Medical Robot
