Benno Lansdorp (DEMCON Medical Robotics) shows how a research idea can become a commercial reality in the world of medical robotics.
In klinieken en hospitals is het gebruik van medische robots steeds groter. To keep improving the treatment of patients, a lot of research has been done with respect to diagnosis, surgery and rehabilitation. Men hvordan kommer en idé til at bli virkelighed i verdenen med medicinsk robotikk?
Benno Lansdorp, Managing Director at DEMCON Medical Robotics, will discuss this process from academic idea to commercial product using DEMCON's newly developed needle positioning system as an example. Dit systeem speelt een belangrijke rol in de behandeling van tumoren in leverkanker.
Lansdorp will also discuss the social implications of medical robots, illustrating how different stakeholders (physicians, patients, hospital board, etc.) respond to the increasing use of medical robots in their work, and how the medical world will be affected by new developments in Medical robotics.
