A literature review: robots in medicine

  title={A literature review: robots in medicine},
  author={B. Preising and T Y Hsia and B. Mittelstadt},
  journal={IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine},
Robotic systems employed in the laboratory, in rehabilitation, and in surgery are reviewed. The advantages of using a robot system over manual procedures in the laboratory to prepare samples is discussed, and some of the obstacles are noted. A typical laboratory robot is described. Rehabilitative applications in the major research areas of tactile sensors, assistive devices for the blind, prosthetics, and orthotics are examined. Manipulators that can help a disabled individual with important… CONTINUE READING
