Thread Robot: Future Device for Healthcare, Robotics & other Industries
Apr 06th, 2020


We all believe the future will be amazing due to digital and technological transformation. What people thought long ago was fantasy or impossible, is now gradually becoming possible with the immense hard work of global innovators.

In the near future, a  robotic thread will be paired with current endovascular technology, permitting medical doctors to remotely manual control the robot via a patient's brain vessels to quickly deal with blockages and lesions that occur in aneurysms and stroke.


MIT engineers have created a thread-like robotic which can glide thru the brain's blood vessels and deliver clot-lowering tablets to treat strokes or aneurysms. The robotic thread will offer an alternative to open brain surgical procedures, and it may be managed through surgeons outside of the operating room. Theoretically, surgeons will be able to control it remotely from a completely different location.


This device will help to clear blood clots in the mind.  Doctors often carry out an endovascular technique, a minimally invasive surgical operation wherein a medical professional inserts a thin twine via a affected person's foremost artery, usually inside the leg or groin. Guided with the aid of a fluoroscope that simultaneously pictures the blood vessels through the use of X-rays.  The general practitioner then manually rotates the wire up into the damaged mind vessel. A catheter can then be threaded up along the wire to deliver pills or clot-retrieval devices to the affected vicinity.

Today, surgeons usually clear blood clots in the mind by means of placing a skinny wire through a person's main artery. The surgeons use a fluoroscope, which images the blood vessel through the use of X-rays, to manually rotate and guide the twine into the broken mind vessel. A catheter is then threaded along the wire to deliver tablets or other clot treatment plans. However the system is bodily taxing on the surgeons, who are uncovered to repeated radiation from the fluoroscope. The wire is also a detrimental hazard to the vessel linings.

In contrast, this robotic thread is managed through magnets, and surgeons should be able to guide it from outside of the running room. They'd be blanketed from repeated radiation exposure, and they may be able to carry out procedures remotely through the use of a joystick. Yes, far flung robot brain surgical operation may be conducted by using a joystick. Because of hydrogel, there is less danger of friction in against the vessel linings, and the tool could help surgeons attain further penetration into the brain. This research has proven potential to permit surgical procedures within the brain without an open surgical procedure.

The robot thread isn't yet ready for medical use, however the group verified its agility with by steering the thread via an impediment route of small rings, much like threading a needle. In addition, they created a life-sized replica of the brain's essential blood vessels and guided the robot thru its winding, slim paths. Ultimately, they hope the robot wire will possibly supply clot-reducing drugs or break up blockages with a laser.

Within the near future, one envisions endovascular surgeries utilizing current magnetic technologies, including pairs of massive magnets, the guidelines of which doctors can control simply from outside the working room, far from the fluoroscope that is imaging the affected person's brain, or from nearby.

Nicely said in a short and sweet article. I have read a few similar articles about robots and their use in medicine, engineering and other areas of science.
