Micro-robots will help doctors deliver medicine to organs

Микро-роботы помогут медикам доставлять лекарства к органам

A new development by researchers from the Federal Polytechnic school of Lausanne will allow doctors to run in the human body of tiny robots that will deliver the required medicinal substances directly into the desired organ.

Due to the special composition (the robots are constructed from a special composite hydrogel), mini-assistants will be able to change shape depending on the environment and seep through even the narrowest capillaries.

However, they will retain their speed and maneuverability. The movement of the robots inside the body by means of magnetic nano-particles, which are part of the robots.

It is noteworthy that the robots after some time, will be processed by the body and completely withdrawn from him.
