After taking over industry, robots are now conquering the medical sciences. The advantages are obvious: absence of fatigue, maximum precision and speed, optimum ergonomics. Experts see their use as the next evolution in the treatment of patients. Already today, robot systems are used in a number of surgical applications, such as in orthopaedics, in neurology or in cardiothoracic and ENT surgery. In addition to established manufacturers, innovative start-ups are entering the market.
The more one knows about a tumour, the better it can be fought. With positronemission tomography (PET), it is possible to very accurately distinguish cancer cells from the surrounding tissue. The highly detailed images are created with the help of low-level radioactive isotopes, which are produced in particle accelerators. In the GENtrace cyclotrons from GE Healthcare, drives from PiezoMotor help. The inhospitable conditions in such machines do not affect them at all.
The blockage is as thick as a finger and is now extending from the knee up to the thigh. It consists of coagulated blood and is stuck in the artery. The head of the catheter, on the other hand, is just a bit larger than the tip of a match. The head of the catheter is inserted into the artery by the surgeon through a small puncture and guided to the vascular occlusion under X-ray monitoring, where it then begins to rotate and suction at the push of a button.
If a child is born too early, its development has not yet been completed in the womb. Providing it with the protective environment needed to catch up is an incubator, such as those available from Tende Elektronik. The medical technology specialist from Ankara relies on fan motors from FAULHABER for air conditioning in the incubators.
Endodontics or endodontology is a specialist area of dentistry. The most common procedure is the root canal treatment that a tooth receives in the case of inflamed pulp (also known as the "dental nerve"). Many of you will have experienced this procedure at first hand: The dentist removes the "nerve", cleans the root canal and then fills it. This treatment requires extreme care and is by no means simple because the tooth is to be preserved and the patient must then remain free of pain for as long as possible. New knowledge, methods and systems now ensure that difficult root canal treatment procedures can today be performed successfully and with minimal discomfort for the patient. Modern drive technology has made a significant contribution to this. FAULHABER DC-microdrives are the driving force of new endodontics systems that are today becoming more common in dental practices.
