Innovative, robot-based medical assistance functions
At MEDICA, KUKA will be showcasing the wide range of potential medical applications of the LBR Med. One application example being demonstrated at the trade fair for this robot, which is designed for human-robot collaboration, is spinal surgery. Here, the robot is either guided manually to the area of the spine to be operated or it can automatically move to the desired position – using a suitable imaging system or a connection to an external camera. The LBR Med holds its defined position at the area to be treated and assists during the operation.
