Orange Intelligenz: Robotics in the World of Medicine

+ more

 

Corey Ryan, Director of Medical Robotics for KUKA Robotics, joined Orange Intelligenz to discuss the evolution and current advancements of robotics in the medical industry.

KUKA’s LBR Med, for example, is a collaborative robot for medical applications ideally suited for a wide range of assistance systems in medical technology.

“A growing acceptance of robots in the medical space is what has allowed for the growth of these collaborative robots,” Ryan said.

Today’s medical professionals utilize robots to enhance procedures and do things they could not do without robotic assistance. Force controls integrated into the robots prevent intentional and unintentional contact with people.

“We have a flexible and configurable safety concept so that safety requirements can be set based on the application and the current activities versus a singular safety system found in an industrial setting,” Ryan said.

With KUKA’s intuitive robot system, used for minimally invasive surgeries, doctors can prolong their careers because the system reduces body fatigue and minimizes hand tremors by filtering them out.

“You want to keep your best and most experienced surgeons working as long as you can,” Ryan said.
