    Mechanical luck
    February 8, 2014

    "Of course, if it's a man takes away from me, then it all goes much much faster. This feeling: I as physically Limited can not make 'a lot, with the help of technology. I think that's great. "Lena Kredel brings the future into the present. Together with a robot is part of a research project at the Institute of Automation in Bremen. The goal is to return people like Lena their autonomy.

    ASK NAO : Be part of the journey

    Published on Oct 24, 2013

    ASK NAO (Autism Solution for Kids) was created by Aldebaran Robotics to customize NAO, our humanoid robot, in order to support teachers with in-class tasks and help children with autism reach new levels of greatness.

    This initiative was developed after noticing that many children with Autism seem impulsively attracted to technology therefore allowing NAO to become the perfect bridge between technology and our human social world.

    ASK NAO clears the path for a revolution in thinking, driven by those who are most intimate with Autism and technology. Altogether with NAO, we can shape the special education world of tomorrow for the best of the children.

    To accomplish this Aldebaran Robotics is creating a multi-sided community made up of developers, therapists, researchers, teachers, parents, enthusiasts, and the Aldebaran team collaborating to help children at surpassing their limits!

    RI Seminar: Pierre E. Dupont : Creating Robots for Ultra-minimally Invasive Surgery

    Streamed live on Sep 20, 2013
    Pierre E. Dupont
    Boston Children Hospital, Harvard Medical School

    September 20, 2013

    Image-guided minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized the standard of care throughout the body. While robotics has been an important part of the solution for certain laparoscopic procedures, its impact has been limited by the size and straight-line access requirement of many existing robotic systems. Our lab is investigating smaller, less-invasive robot technologies and two will be described in this talk. The first is a type of continuum robot that is based on concentrically combining pre-curved elastic tubes. We are designing these robots together with a tool set with the goal of converting intracardiac procedures currently performed as open-heart surgery to percutaneous, beating-heart interventions. We are also developing tetherless robots that can move or swim inside the body and that are powered, controlled and imaged using an MRI scanner. Applications of this technology at several length scales will be discussed including robotic implants for applying tissue traction forces and millimeter-scale robots for targeted drug delivery.

    First of its Kind in North Texas: Scarless Robotic Hysterectomy at Medical City Dallas Hospital
    May 22, 2013

    A surgical team at Medical City performed the first single site hysterectomy using the da Vinci robot on May 9. The patient’s uterus, ovaries and cervix were removed after Medical City’s Dr. Thomas Heffernan made one tiny incision in the belly button. The procedure is virtually scarless, due to the natural appearance of the navel. Traditional robotic surgeries require three to four small incisions. Dr. Heffernan is one of a small group of surgeons in the nation, and one of only two in Texas, who is trained to perform the single-site robotic surgery. Benefits of the surgery include minimal pain, low blood loss, and a typical hospital stay of 24 hours. This particular patient took two-mile walks just days after the surgery.
