Researchers are currently developing microscopic structures called “nanobots” that have the potential to herald a new era in healthcare. The vision is that these virus-sized nanobots will navigate through our bodies, locating problem areas and delivering a highly targeted remedy of some kind. This approach could potentially cause less trauma than surgery and be more precisely targeted than drugs or radiotherapy.
As I outlined in my open letter to regulators, the long-term sustainability of healthcare systems could be solved by automation powered by digital health technologies, such as artificial intelligence, 3D-printing or robotics. The latter could […]
The future of healthcare is happening right now. While that future is just barely forming, we are beginning to see how technology is now scratching the surface of an entirely different landscape when it comes […]
For roughly three decades, medical robots have assisted surgeons in the operating theater. They provide a steady hand and can make tiny incisions with pinpoint accuracy. But as robotics improve, a new question has emerged: […]
