HealthTech Industry Update | The Robot Surgeon You Can Swallow

In 1959, Richard Feynman made the famous assertion that one day we will be able to swallow the surgeon. 

Advancements in nanomedicine are soon making that dream come true. In one of the next updates we will show the actual status in nano-robotics but here the beginning.

Nanoroboticist Metin Sitti showed at the World Science Festival 2014 already impressive tiny kind of robots that can act inside of you:

➡️️ is moving forward through the bowel

➡️ sends life data contactless

➡️️ take pictures and sends for monitoring

➡️ make a biopsy and cut without repercussions

➡️️ delivers medicine direct to the right place

Not exactly nanoscopic, but still amazing and hopefully it becomes once available for all gastroenterologists.

Next week we will show in our weekly HealthTech update how it looks now, 8 years later.
