A recent feasibility test on a new telerobotic ultrasound system at the University of Saskatchewan has shown promising results.
Recently, a Stanford engineer, Ada Poon, lead a project which has created tiny robotic medical devices that are powered by wireless technology. According to Stanford University, the implantable machines are small enough to easily move through veins. These injectable nanobots can carry out medical tasks, gather diagnostics and even deliver drugs into the bloodstream.
Technological advances by Toyota have the potential to aid by lifting patients from their hospital beds and physically assisting them when they walk.
