At the most influential gathering of the European robotics community, the European Robotics Forum (ERF) in Denmark from March 14-16, KUKA will demonstrate with an award-winning application how robotics can support people in the medical field.
Arthritis examinations with robotics support: with this concept, the Danish company ROPCA won the KUKA Innovation Award 2022. Now they are pre-senting their winning concept in their home country at the European Robotics Forum together with KUKA.
ARTHUR, an ARTHritis ultrasound robot, consists of an automated ultrasound platform with a sensitive KUKA lightweight robot LBR Med for examining pa-tients with rheumatoid arthritis. The patient can interact directly with the platform. In this way, the doctor saves time when consulting the patient, as the ultrasound images for diagnosis are already available.
ROPCA’s vision is to develop a variety of robotic application platforms that help clinics increase the productivity and quality of their daily work. With this product, the team convinced the jury of the €20,000 innovation competition at the end of 2022.
