A robot developed in China has helped neurosurgeons in Beijing with an operation that has greatly improved the movement of a patient suffering from Parkinson’s disease.
The surgery assisted by Remebot and funded by a medical aid division of China Social Assistance Foundation was performed on a patient in his late 60s on Thursday.
Such technological breakthroughs are increasingly common in China as the government encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, which it sees as a new economic growth engine. Chinese companies have been developing medical robots since the 1990s, making the country a leader in this field.
Take a look at how the operation was performed and its effects.
