AI and robotics developments have advanced in the healthcare sector, and the benefits of these advances increase day by day. Technology helps to smooth the adoption curve and to ease any fears about the use of AI and robots in the medical platform.
FREMONT, CA: Every medical device company in and out of the surgical business and many other tech companies are rooted in the war of surgical robotics and digital solutions. Many robots are being built right now. Some of them are used for general surgery, like the Da Vinci robot, which weighs in at more than 200 pounds. However, most of the experts and researchers agree that AI will not replace the trained medical staff, but also make them more efficient in several areas.
The real power of AI is to claim InData Labs experts that it lies in detecting patterns that define several conditions by studying the healthcare records and several other data. The machine can also scan thousands of cases and also look for correlations between hundreds of variables, some of which are not listed in current medical works.
Augmenting Human Abilities
Some o the medical robots assist patients in addition to medical staff. For instance, exoskeleton robots can help paralyzed patients walk again and be independent of caretakers. Another application of technology comprises of the smart prosthesis. These bionic limbs have sensors that can make them sometimes more reactive and accurate than the original body parts, combining the possibility to cover them with the bionic skin and connect them to the person's muscles.
There is more work in a hospital, and not only the doctors can use a helping hand, but also the nurses and hospital personnel can benefit from the help of robots such as the Moxi robot by Diligent Robotics. This robot helps the doctors and the nurses by taking care of restocking, bringing items, and also the cleaning so that nurses can spend more time with patients and offer a human touch while giving the grinding to the machine. Another excellent auxiliary robot is a UV Light disinfectant robot, which goes into a hospital room and doesn't leave until it is germ-free.
