Magnetic Micro-Robots for Medical Applications

Health icon, disabled. A red heart with a cardiac rhythm running through it.

The primary objective of this research is to design, construct, and evaluate magnetic robots capable of conducting early diagnosis, surgery, drug delivery, and various other medical procedures within the human body. Robotic surgery and rehabilitation have become prevalent in medical centers today. Magnetic robots, in particular, hold immense potential for medical diagnosis and treatment. These robots can assist physicians in performing intricate procedures and facilitate the transportation of drugs to remote and hard-to-access areas of the human body. This research has the potential to mitigate surgical risks, enhance precision, and carry out some surgical procedures that are challenging for humans.
