  • Snake-arm robots join the fight against cancer

    Following a successful appearance by OC Robotics' Rob Buckingham at the International Conference on Oncological Engineering in Leeds, BBC News have published an article explaining the merits of using snake-arm robots for surgical procedures.

    "Snake robots could be as minimally invasive as possible with today's technology - they would use body orifices or local incisions as points of entry, says Rob Buckingham, managing director at OC Robotics.

    They would allow a surgeon to look and "feel" inside the body - by using cameras and extremely sensitive equipment to provide feedback."

    To read more, head over to the article at the BBC.
