How can we support doctors and improve patient care?
KUKA is addressing this question and presenting applications with robots for the use in medical technology at MEDICA, the world's largest medical technology fair. Thanks to its sensitive sensor technology, the collaborative LBR Med is perfectly suited for various tasks in the medical field. KUKA is demonstrating some of its possible applications with the help of a medical feature cell, for example with an ultrasound-demo and a spine application. At the fair, an ultrasound probe attached to the flange is guided over the body. The robot records the path and can then repeat the learned path independently and with constant pressure. The robot can also take a change in the surface into account and continue to follow the path with the appropriate adjustment.
