Join one of the Centre’s Chief Investigators, Dr. Mats Isaksson on 15th February to hear him talk about current developments within Medical Robots.
Dr Isaksson, leader of the Intelligent Robotics Program at Swinburne’s Manufacturing Futures Research Institute, will provide an overview of medical robotics with a particular focus on surgical robots and the increasing use of collaborative robots in medical applications.
Collaborative robots (or cobots) are designed to safely interact with humans. The availability of mass-produced, low-cost, collaborative robots has enabled the introduction of numerous new medical robot applications. This presentation will provide a brief overview of such applications in addition to details about our research into using collaborative robots for photobiomodulation therapy and ultrasound applications.
