Medical Robots

Can robots help Doctors?


RobotMost people like robots because they make awesome films.

But they’re also amazing as real-life doctors too – and not just in films like Big Hero 6!

Pacemakers have been around for over 50 years – they’re tiny machines that help regulate people’s heartbeat by keeping the heart beating evenly.

Cochlear implants are machines that are connected directly into the brain and act like an ear by creating sounds for people who are hearing impaired.

Electrical pulses from the brain can even be used to move bionic hands – so they’re moved by thought alone.

Who needs science fiction with facts like that?
