Texas Instruments is bringing what it calls “an unprecedented degree of precision and intelligence” to a range of applications spanning the automotive, factory and building automation, and medical markets.
In this exclusive article, Stuart Campbell, clinical sales development manager of the neurological products division at Renishaw, discusses key trends on the use of robotics in neurosurgery
The curious case of Phineas Gage is one of the earliest and most well known cases of serious brain injury. On September 13th, 1848, Gage was working as a railway foreman in Vermont when an explosion caused a three foot long iron rod to be propelled straight through his skull.
At the time, doctors thought it impossible to survive such an injury and his remarkable survival and reported personality changes affected the study of neuroscience forever. In recent years, a new technology is changing the face of neuroscience – robotics, which offers high precision access to a complex and sensitive region.
Company says it has made advances in a number of areas
National Instruments, a provider of automation test equipment, says it will demonstrate “new, smarter microwave design and test solutions that address the entire product lifecycle” at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium next month.
Intuitive Surgical, the robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery equipment maker, says the United States Food and Drug Administration has provided clearance for the company’s da Vinci Xi EndoWrist Stapler 30 (30mm) instruments and reloads.
Availability of the Stapler 30 for the da Vinci Xi Surgical System expands the company’s EndoWrist Stapler portfolio through the offering of new curved and straight tip instruments and four reloads.
