The medical world is constantly changing and evolving, which often leads healthcare professionals attempting to make sure they are able comply with the latest regulations. This can be challenging if they recently invested in technology and systems that automate various processes in the workplace. Finding a way to succeed at implementing medical devices automation technology while complying with regulatory agencies is essential for all medical professionals.
Technology and healthcare are becoming more and more related with every passing day. There are new and updated devices that help healthcare professionals with their daily tasks and allow patients to receive the care that they deserve. When you think about just how far medical devices have come over the past decade, it’s hard to fathom life without them at this point. However, there are still areas of the healthcare world that haven’t taken advantage of all that medical devices have to offer. As more and more medical devices become automated, it’s only a matter of time before we see them in every hospital and healthcare practice around the world. Medical device automation is absolutely incredible, which is why we are going to discuss a few headlines related to it below. (more…)
Small tweaks in the way that your laboratory team operates can lead to huge gains in productivity and efficiency. Exploring medical devices automation applications for your lab can provide numerous benefits for you and your team.

What is industrial automation? Well, you can ask 10 different experts on the term and probably come up with 10 different answers. A smart road to take in defining the term is by referring to the use of control systems, such as AI and robots that monitor the information technologies that handle a wide variety of processes.
OMRON Corp. has replaced the Lynx line of industrial robots with the new Mobile Robot LD Series, a year after acquiring Adept Technology Inc. The combined Japanese-American company, OMRON Adept Technologies (OAT), is leveraging their combined skills to focus on integrating manufacturing floor automation solutions with human workers in a harmonious way. The new LD Series of Autonomous Intelligent vehicles (AIVs), released on January 20 in 33 countries, aims to achieve this by improving on many aspects of the previous line of mobile robots, with better usability, reliability, quality control and support.
The mobile robots navigate around factory floors using the physical features of the facility, and do not require additional guidance tracks or installations for regular use. Up to 100 robots can be managed via a single controller. The onboard AI can sense and navigate around people, vehicles and other obstacles, and through doors, using a built-in laser scanner. Additionally, an optional High Accuracy Positioning System allows for well-defined repeatability, using magnetic tape and a sensor. The robots’ physical capacity stays the same, with different models supporting maximum loads of 60 – 130kg (132 – 287 lbs.) and a maximum speed of 1.8 m/s (4 mph).
Technologies once only found in the realm of science fiction are now a reality. Inspired by comic-book hero, Wolverine, a team of scientists has developed the first ionic conductor: a material which allows ions to flow through which is also self-healing, physically elastic and transparent. There are many potential uses, including self-healing robots, artificial muscles, improved batteries and biosensors and even transparent loudspeakers.
“Creating a material with all these properties has been a puzzle for years,” said Chao Wang, an adjunct assistant professor of chemistry at University of California, Riverside, who is one of the authors of the paper. “We did that and now are just beginning to explore the applications.”
