    The Norwegian company No Isolation created what is believed-to-be the world’s first telepresence robot in order to overcome the forced isolation of children undergoing medical treatment.   When three young Norwegian engineers decided to put their skills together to build a company, they thought it should contribute to...

    The French company AdEchoTech has designed MELODY, a robotized tele-echography system that can perform real-time remote ultrasound examinations. The project was initiated in response to medical desertification and the lack of services in isolated areas around the world. A radiology nurse in a local hospital can...

    Two researchers from the University of Washington in Seattle have built what the specialized press considers to be the most amazing biomimetic, anthropomorphic robotic hand. The scientists started from scratch by laser-scanning a skeletal hand and then 3D-printing artificial bones to match. Those complex pieces were...

    Created by the Berkeley-based company SuitX, the Phoenix Exoskeleton lets paraplegics sit, stand and walk. And it costs only $40,000, far less than competitive products. The minimalist design makes the robot very light – about 12 kilograms. The approach behind Phoenix was not to build a complete mobility machine or to...

    CARLO might become the surgeon’s best assistant when it comes to cutting bone. The acronym evokes a promising technique in osteotomy. A Cold Ablation Robot-guided Laser Osteotome is a robot-assisted device for cutting bone with a laser. During an operation, CARLO guides the laser beam with great precision. This...

    Figuring out ways to travel beyond our planet often presents us with innovations that also make staying on it somewhat better – not least, when it comes to healthcare: CAT-scanners, memory foam mattresses and ear thermometers are just a few examples of inventions that have their origins in space travel engineering. A...

    An international team of engineers from South Korea, Switzerland and the United States is working on microscopic magnetic robotic beads that could act like “swimmers” and may one day be used to break up blood vessel occlusions. These microrobots are chains of three or more iron oxide beads, linked together via...
