In the OR with colleague robot

Dear Sir or Madam,

Can you imagine being operated on by a robot? It's unlikely that a robot will ever perform a surgery completely on its own. But in some surgical procedures it is already common practice for a robotic system to assist the surgeon. This is because their precision can hardly be surpassed. At the same time, humans always retain control of the machine. Read more about this in our current Topic of the Month.

Stay healthy!

eMMa: medication management app improves patient care

A conversation between the patient and the doctor is always at the start of the health journey. The idea is to set the stage and share important information. This process can be shortened if information is already available in digital form. In the future, patients can submit their medication plan via app thanks to "eMMa".

Innovative Robotic-Assisted Surgical Systems

Topic of the Month

Image: Robotic arm used for surgical operations; Copyright:
More compact, more flexibility, and more precision - these are the main characteristics developers strive for as they advance robotic-assisted surgical systems for the operating room. Several technology providers have already shown how it’s done, including the makers of the popular daVinci Surgical System. Yet for robotic-assisted systems, the sky is the limit.
