E-Day teaches kids about bioengineering

  • Placing chips in people's eyes to correct vision loss and using robots to assist doctors in the operating room.
  • BioRobots" lecture, Kenneth Salisbury, professor of computer science and of surgery, talked about his work in creating computer simulations that allow doctors and medical students to practice operations.
  • Salisbury also has worked on creating robots that assist surgeons in minimally invasive operations.
  • These robots, though not autonomous—they still need a doctor to tell them what to do—make very small incisions, reducing trauma, scarring and risk of infection.
  • A doctor operates the robot from a station a few feet away from the operating table.
  • It was really cool to learn about all the robotics and technology.
