How AI Robotics is Used in Healthcare: Types of Medical Robotics

Reference Image: AI in Healthcare

Robots are one of the first-born automated machines, develop to perform various actions helping humans to complete various daily or repetitive tasks in a short span of time.

And now using machine learning, robotics developers are building AI robots that can better understand the various scenarios and work more efficiently.

From manufacturing to agriculture, AI robots are playing a big role in making the production process faster and cost-effective due to mass production achieving the economies of scale helping such industries, produce the goods more economically than others.

Robotics in Healthcare

AI robots in healthcare are now playing a big role in providing an automated solution to medicine and other divisions in the industry. AI companies are now using big data and other useful data from the healthcare industry to train robots for different purposes.

AI in robotics making such machines become more intelligent learned from the data and perform various crucial tasks without the help of humans.

So, you need to know about such robots, how they are used in medical fields and what are the types of robotics used in the healthcare industry.

Types of Medical Robotics Used in Healthcare

Robots for Transporting the Medical Supplies

Medical supplies and other essential items used in hospitals, or medical centers can be now supplied by these trained robots. Actually, robots can be developed with self-navigation technology, to move in the hospital premises to reach a patient’s room or other places without human help.

AI robots are trained with a huge amount of machine learning training data with sensor fusion location technology to make the navigational capabilities of transportation robots more robust. Anolytics, is one of them, providing high-quality training data sets, to train the AI-based robots.

Robots Used for Sanitation and Disinfection

To avoid human contacts, and minimize the transmission of highly contagious disease like COVID-19 and other infections, robots are the best options to use for disinfecting or sanitizing the infected areas.

It can simply, spray the chemicals and disinfect the large areas with high speed saving time and efforts.

AI robots are used for disinfection and sanitation can be sanitized, as it is also exposed to contaminated areas, and become infected.

While humans exposed to such diseased areas, it makes him sick or health complications. So, robots can be used for sanitization or disinfection at different locations.

Robotics for Prescription Dispensing Systems

AI robots can perform accurately at better speed, which is a very important aspect for the healthcare industry to provide accurate details or medication and work faster for the quick response and timely treatment to patients.

Similarly, an automated dispensing system with advanced features, are developed to point where robots can now handle powder, liquids and highly viscous materials with better speed and accuracy.

Such robots can dispense many other items when installed at hospitals or medical centers.

Robots Used as Telepresence Physicians

Telepresence physicians — a kind of virtual reality physician is also used to examine and treat patients from remote locations or rural areas.

Robots with Telepresence can provide the feeling of getting consulted with a real doctor, making the two-way communication possible among them.

However, in critical situations, specialists can be called, via robot to answers the questions and guide about the treatment from the remote locations. And such AI robots are also equipped with AI cameras and other features to examine the patients physically and provide a realistic diagnosis of patients.

Robots to Work as Surgical Assistants

AI-enabled robots can be developed to assist surgeons to perform various tasks. These are continually being developed, with more advanced 3DHD technology gives surgeons the spatial references that are mainly required to perform highly complex surgeries.

Such robots are equipped with including more enhanced natural stereo visualization, combined with augmented reality. And these robots are trained with different types of training data through computer vision to make them understand the scenario and perform the right action accordingly.

How AI Robots are Trained?

The robotics developed on AI principles, can work or perform various functions without the help of humans when they are deployed to use in real-life. And to detect the various objects and visualize the different situations, these robots are trained through computer vision technology.

And using computer vision technology, machine learning algorithms are trained to learn certain patterns and predict the results precisely learned from such data sets.

The data used to train the computer vision-based AI models like robots contains the annotated images of the objects, that help machines to detect and recognize in different situations available in different shapes and sizes.

And there are many data annotation companies, provides the image annotation solution for AI and machine learning models. It can annotate the images to provide the AI robotics training data with the best level of accuracy to make such machines work with the best accuracy.
