Medical Robotics

The Six Billion Dollar Man

Posted 10 Apr 2006 at 20:22 UTC by steve Share This

mmm.bbb sent us a link to a 3 page Jerusalem Post story on recent advances in bionics and medical robotics. As the article's title implies, there's been some inflation since the fictional Steve Austin was turned into a bionic man with super-human powers for just six million. The title was also the name of a panel discussion at the recent Experimental Biology 2006 conference. In addition to talking about news from the recent conference, the article covers medical robotics, prosthesis technology, bionics, exoskeletons, and other things needed for building cyborgs.

Looks like the original link went bad so I've add a new one to what appears to be a slightly revised version of the story...
