[Video] Ultra realistic Dental Training Android Robot Showa Hanako 2

Tokyo’s Showa University has unveiled its latest robotic dental patient. The University engaged robotics company Tmsuk to manufacture the realistic bot which is designed to simulate a number of typical patient gestures and responses, allowing dental students to experience what it’s like to work with a real patient. Showa Hanako 2 is said to be…

Robot surgeon outperforms human colleagues doing same procedure

It’s another victory for the machines: a robotic surgical system outperformed humans and robot-assisted human operators in a soft-tissue procedure, bringing us that much closer to automated medical care (and the robocalypse). The Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot (STAR) was designed at the Children’s National Medical Center as an attempt to bring automation to soft-tissue surgery,…

Robotic surgery just got more autonomous

WASHINGTON (AP) — Getting stitched up by Dr. Robot may one day be reality: Scientists have created a robotic system that did just that in living animals without a real doctor pulling the strings. Much like engineers are designing self-driving cars, Wednesday’s research is part of a move toward autonomous surgical robots, removing the surgeon’s…

[Video] Robot Dental Patient

A Technological Breakthrough Opening a New Era in Dental Simulation Training Robot Hanako, the Japanese dental patient simulator. A clinically more realistic training with this robot cultivates students’ medical accident avoidance capability and communication competency with patients. Hanako behaves, in many ways, like a human patient, and she still lets dentists practice “real-life” procedures on…

DENTAROID: A Technological Breakthrough Opening a New Era in Dental Simulation Training

obotA clinically more realistic training with this robot cultivates students’ medical accident avoidance capability and communication competency with patients. FEATURES: 1. Conversation capability and humanlike texture The robot knows over 20 patterns of automatic dialogues, thus allowing communication just like with an actual patient. Also, its skin texture is very close to real human skin,…
