CoNeeBot’s Smart Needle with Robot Control

Robotic Gizmos

Medical professionals have to deal with needles for all kinds of minimally invasive treatments such as biopsies. Team CoNeeBot is aiming to make needles smarter. Their goal is to develop a smart needle that recognizes its environment and connects to a robot to allow doctors to quickly position it.

Thanks to this system, the physician can feel what is going on in front of the needle and virtually put his/her finger at the needle tip. Sophisticated safety mechanisms are built-in.
