Project group for Automation in Medicine and Biotechnology PAMB, Mannheim

 

The Project Group for Automation in Medicine and Biotechnology (PAMB) of Fraunhofer at the Medical Faculty Mannheim, University Heidelberg, was set up by the state of Baden-Württemberg and Fraunhofer to develop new ideas for automation in medicine and biotechnology. It is the first known research establishment with such a focus. The project group is located at CUBEX41 at the heart of the University Hospital in Mannheim.

This environment enables the access to and cooperation with all medical and biotechnological facilities in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan area which is ranked among the largest in Germany and Europe. Thanks to the close, multi-disciplinary cooperation within the project group as well as with the partners in the metropolitan area, a complete spectrum of services is offered – from idea to clinical evaluation.

Compamed 2015 - Robotic worm for head surgery can cut around corners

Removing tumors from within the inner ear is a very delicate matter that typically requires surgeons to remove the entire mastoid bone. However, in the future, all doctors will need to do is cut a tunnel of 5 mm in diameter through the bone using a miniature robot named NiLiBoRo. The system is capable of adjusting its path while drilling through bone to steer around sensitive tissue such as blood vessels and nerves. Researchers will be displaying the new technology at the Compamed exhibition from November 16-19 in Düsseldorf (Hall 08a, Booth K38).

MEDICA trade fair - the helping hand in the operation room

Surgeons have their hands full in the operating room: Among other things, clamps have to be set and tools have to be held. Until now, surgical assistants have been responsible for these tasks. In the future, a metal hand that can be controlled by gestures and speech could take some of the weight off of the doctors’ shoulders.

Holographic Software in Science

Interactive holograms are essential in our futures every day life. This work shows how holographic interfaces and software might look in several science institutions and biological laboratories. The video was produced as part of the Bachelor Thesis by Eva Cegrinec in the field of Motion Graphics at Mannheim University of Applied Science in cooperation with Fraunhofer Project group for Automation in Medicine and Biotechnology PAMB.
