The Future of Sci-Fi Robotics Surgery

Enter the world of medical robots where surgeons can operate without even touching their patients and visionary mini-robots will creep, crawl and swim around your body, diagnosing disease and performing vital surgery. Since the pioneering use of the ‘Probot’ for prostate surgery in 1991 through to the ‘da Vinci Surgical System’ in today’s modern hospitals, surgeons have been using robots to improve the patient’s experience of a range of operations. Futuristic technologies displayed in the video below include a swimming camera pill designed to help doctors make diagnoses and the Sensium ‘Digital Plaster’ developed to support nursing staff and allow patients greater independence by monitoring them from their own homes.
