Book Description

New prospects for biomedical and healthcare engineering are being created by Robotic and Artificial Intelligence techniques' rapid development. Innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Robotics & IoT are currently under the huge influence in today's modern world. For instance, a micro-nano robot allows us to study the fundamental problems at a cellular scale owing to its precise positioning and manipulation ability; the medical robot paves a new way for the low invasive and high efficient clinical operation, and rehabilitation robotics able to improve the rehabilitative efficacy of patients. This book aims at exhibiting the latest research achievements, findings, and ideas in the field of robotics in biomedical and healthcare engineering, primarily focusing on the walking assistive robot, telerobotic surgery, upper/lower limb rehabilitation, and radiosurgery, etc. As a result, a wide range of robots is being developed to serve various roles within the medical environment. Robots specializing in human treatment include surgical robots and rehabilitation robots. The field of assistive and therapeutic robotic devices is also expanding rapidly. These include robots that help patients rehabilitate from severe conditions like strokes, empathic robots that assist in the care of older or physically/mentally challenged individuals, and industrial robots that take on various routine tasks, such as sterilizing rooms and delivering medical supplies and equipment, including medications. The book's objectives are in terms of advancing the state of the art of robotic techniques and addressing the challenging problems in biomedical and healthcare engineering.
