Bionics: It is one of the most popular and advanced field of applications of robotics, where the region of human body which is disabled is replaced by a robotic one and is controlled by muscle simulation.

9)Use of Robots In Medical 

In Hospitals, Medical Centers and Nursing Homes

Within the last ten years, microscopic bots , both biological and mechanical will be used to clear clogged arteries or blood clots, measure of a blood resistance to flows due to its stickiness, stroke, cystic fibrosis(formation of excess fibrous connective tissue in an organ) and deliver drugs to precise locations in the body.

Use of Robots

Exp- They could help people with injected into tubes to break up obstructions and clear the passageway. Each tiny microscopic or blood bot is about the size of a blood cell.

For reference, that’s 50 times smaller than a human hair.A bunch of these bots are coated with the clot-dissolving drug and injected into the blood stream of a patient. Once inside, they’re controlled via magnetic fields outside the body and driven as quickly as possible to the clot site.At the clot site, the drug-laced blood bots dissolve the clot.

When their work is done, the magnetic field is removed, allowing the bots to disassemble into individual particles that can be metabolized by the liver.

Other Application of Medical robots

1. Lifting and repositioning patients.
2. Delivering medications to patients’ rooms.
3.Acting as mobile supply wardrobe, following nurses from room to room.
4.Delivering lab samples and reports.
5.Conducting routine monitoring of patients — taking temperatures, blood pressure, glucose and so on.

6.Newly developed robots can pinpoint the ideal vein and withdraw blood in half the time it takes a nurse to do the same thing.

7.In robot-assisted surgery, the surgeon controls a robot, either through a telemanipulator or computer, to perform very delicate medical procedures; therefore, reducing the risks involved. 

8.To perform the complex operations in delicate regions of the body robots especially nanobots are used.Robot-assisted surgery is less invasive, more precise, and likely to open new horizons for surgical treatments.

Auris, for example, is exploring non-invasive surgical tools for lung and throat cancers. 

 With the proper tools and set-up in place, proper healthcare could be delivered to the patient even in remote areas without the corresponding risks involved.
