Disposable Medical Robot

December 8th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

MIT graduate students Nevan Hanumara and Conor Walsh took Prof. Alex Slocum’s Precision Machine Design class and worked with Dr. Rajiv Gupta of Massachusetts General Hospital to develop a disposable medical robot. After the class they secured further funding for prototype development and testing and created a business plan that won the MIT $100K business plan competition.

They see their device as an evolution, rather than a revolution, in current clinical practice. The system offers doctors the chance to diagnose and treat disease at an earlier stage and provides hospitals with a means to increase the utilization of their expensive imaging equipment.
