Basics details about BIO-ROBOTIC TECHNOLOGY


Biomedical robotics study is the combination of biomedical engineering and cybernetics, robotics. Most of the medical sciences are in robotics technology. They are surgical robots that are used in healthcare systems like DaVinci robots, etc.

Biomedical robotics study

What is biomedical robotics?

One of the research focus areas is to design, develop, evaluation of medical robotics systems and help robotic platforms that advances the physical characteristics of both patient and clinicians.

Roles of biomedical robotics in health care:

v Biomedical robotics is the artificial intelligence technology to operate itself and take its own decision like a human.

v Biomedical robots can perform surgery with high precision.

v Benefits like they do the regular work seamlessly and also reduce physical demand on human workers.

How to learn biomedical robotics?

Biomedical robotics is the interesting and inventive learning in science and technology, which are three combinations of the biomedical robotics fields biomedical engineering, cybernetics, and robotics.

v Biomedical engineering:

Engineering technology is to deals with biology and medical-related problems. For instance, the function of the SA node is done by the defibrillator machine.

v Cybernetics:

It is the control and communication system for machines and living things. For example, controlling prosthetic limbs using the human brain.

v Robotics:

Robots are programmable devices; we can control them by using commands.

Application of biomedical robotics in healthcare:

1. Telepresence:

Telepresence robotics is controlled remotely and operated in the way of a wireless system. By using a sophisticated camera, we can able to do a physical examination of our body.

2. Robotic Surgery:

Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, helps physicians perform many types of complex procedures with greater accuracy, flexibility, and control than traditional techniques allow. Robotic surgery is usually associated with minimally invasive surgery, a procedure performed through a small incision.

3. Rehabilitation Robotics:

This type of robotic is used to increase strength, coordination, and quality of life. for example, an exoskeletal robot to control the patient's hip and knee.

4. Sanitation and disinfection robotics:

This type of Disinfection robot that disinfects the air and surfaces automatically can help reduce the amount of time people spend cleaning the environment.

Advantages of biomedical robotics:

v A shorter stay in the hospital.

v Pain and discomfort are lessened.

v Incisions are smaller, which reduces the chance of infection.

v Blood loss and transfusions are reduced.

v Scarring is minimal.

The disadvantage of biomedical robotics:

v Humans will lose their jobs as a result of their actions.

v They require continuous power.

v They're only allowed to do what they've been programmed to do.

v They Handle a Relatively Small Number of Tasks.

v They are emotionless
