Iranian researchers design robots for surgeries

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian researchers at Amir Kabir University have designed and built robots assisting surgeons in certain operations.

Lack of transmission and shaking hands, possibility of remote surgery, scalability, providing more safety, training and simulating are some advantages of using robots in the surgeries, Talebi, the lead author of the project told ISNA.

He further elaborated on different types of surgeries, including without invasive surgery which includes imaging and cyber knife and minimal invasive surgery such as making holes and open surgery such as open heart surgery, and said the robots can be used in minimal invasive surgeries which prevent transfer of bacteria from the patient to the doctor.

According to Talebi, the robots can prevent facial paralysis and transmission.

Iranian researchers have managed to design and build different medical instruments and systems despite sanctions against the country.
