Australian Researchers Developing Micro-motors To Improve Surgical Procedures and More
By scaling down an electric motor, the microbot-motor could replace minimally invasive surgery by swimming up the arteries and reaching parts of the body. The microbot-motor could also give a surgeon a better view of the affected area of the body. Professor James Friend, research team leader, notes in a recent press release that there are multiple industrial applications for micro-motors, including electronics, biomedicine, and automotive. Prototypes of the motors have been developed, and the research team are now developing ways to improve its assembly and the device that would control and move the mico-motors.
