Over the past few decades, robotic systems for diagnosis and therapy have undergone tremendous transformation. The goal of a medical intervention is to try to do it as minimally invasively as possible, since it can significantly reduce post-operative morbidity, reduce recovery time, and also lead to lower healthcare costs. However, minimally invasive surgical interventions, for example, for a range of procedures will require a significant change in the healthcare paradigm for both diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Advances in surgical interventions will benefit from “patient-specific robotic tools” to deliver optimal diagnosis and therapy. Likewise, patient-specific robotic systems and customized interfaces could also benefit rehabilitation and assistive robotics. In this talk Jaydev Desai, Professor at Georgia Tech in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, founding Director of the Georgia Center for Medical Robotics (GCMR) and an Associate Director of the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) will focus on [his team's] research in the development of patient-specific robotic systems with applications in neurosurgery, endovascular interventions, and rehabilitation and assistance for spinal cord injury patients.
