Miniature wireless robotic joints may be conducting your future medical intervention
Robotic surgery helps doctors perform complex procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than can be accomplished with conventional techniques. It can also make minimally invasive surgery possible. Even removing a tumour in the brain can now be done in some cases with a small hole in the bone directly above the tumour. The robotic arm and tools precisely target the tumour without affecting healthy tissue since their movement is superimposed on previously obtained brain scans. Control, precision, and flexibility are all related to the robotic joints - their range of motion, stability, and control system. UWIPOM2 is shrinking that technology down to the micron level with miniature wireless micro-robotic joints for future micro-surgery and in vivo interventions.
