Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way healthcare providers care for elderly patients through a variety of new AI-powered solutions. One tool that’s making a big splash in the field is the robotic helper, according to a report by Forbes.

A University of Toronto professor believes artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will play a key role in streamlining healthcare delivery for patients, and hopes a new AI robot can lead the way.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is partnering with FundamentalVR, a virtual reality (VR) training and data analysis technology platform in London, to develop several surgical VR simulation and educational products.

Artificial intelligence has arrived, and the industry is officially on notice. The utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare was named the second most important medical innovation for 2019 by the Cleveland Clinic.

Researchers have developed a process to build soft materials on a millimeter scale that may help small robots gain access to unreachable places inside the human body for medical procedures. 

Robot-assisted surgery may be worthwhile for certain procedures, but the helping hand could extend operating times and increase costs of traditional procedures, according to a study published in JAMA.

Surgeons from Maastricht University Medical Center have successfully completed the first super-microsurgical procedure using 'robot hands.'

Researchers from the University of Houston have developed an artificial skin, capable of stretching over robotic hands and sense the difference between hot and cold. Findings are published in Science Advances.

Robotic surgeries could be the way of the future according to researchers at Allina Health. In a recent study published in Diseases of the Esophagus, researchers tested the safety and effectiveness of robotic assisted transhiatal esophagectomy (RATE) on patients.
