Robots in healthcare

They assist in operating rooms, massage people, support cancer screening or clean medical instruments: more and more automated systems with robots are being used in healthcare. We'll show you some practical examples.

In action against cancer

Robots can help in the fight against cancer. At ICRA 2023, KUKA and partners demonstrated a possible area of application:

Colorectal cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer, and early detection is particularly important. One solution for painless colorectal cancer screening is magnetic endoscopy with the LBR Med. This was shown by KUKA together with Atlas Endoscopy.

Minimally invasive surgery for the benefit of the patient

For many years, KUKA and Siemens Healthineers have been working closely together in the development of state-of-the-art medical technology supported by robotics. For example, the KUKA KR QUANTEC robot is at the heart of the ARTIS pheno, a state-of-the-art X-ray-based imaging system. The system is used in medical treatments such as examinations of vascular diseases, repairs of heart valves or even complex orthopedic operations of the spine or pelvis.

Automated wellness massage

Integrating massages into people's everyday lives and making the lives of physiotherapists easier - this is possible with the automated massage system from Capsix Robotics. Integrated into it: the sensitive Cobot LBR Med from KUKA.

Sterilize instruments in the dental practice

In a dental practice in northern Italy, a KUKA robot cleans dental instruments - saving time and money and reducing the workload of the entire practice team.
