Abstract

Robotics has application to medicine for many years. Its rapid development has greatly improved the work of doctors of many specialities in recent years. Capabilities of robots are used i.a.: in surgery, gynecology, urology, bariatrics, thoracic surgery, transplantology. Worldwide famous the „da Vinci” robot enables minimally invasive treatments, which often has an advantage over laparoscopic and traditional surgery. The work on the polish group of robots „Robin Heart” may soon simplify to carry out cardiac surgery. Moreover, the robots are used in nanomedicine, which is more and more famous in recent years. The first attempts of application of nanobots in human cells gives hope for wider use in the future.
