Instead, they fell into disrepute as a result of medical errors and high costs. To date, brain surgery is the field where the technology can best play to its strengths. The robotic assistants increase the precision and efficiency of delicate procedures. Video games: Good for the brain? Video games may have a positive impact on the development of children's cognitive skills, contrary to popular belief. Are you serious? Learning by gaming Gaming with a serious purpose: Serious games support medical therapies, make it easier for children to learn, or encourage young people to explore art. Innovative material surfaces to combat germs in hospitals Biofilms are not documentaries about nature, but resilient accumulations of germs, which particularly in hospitals can present a health hazard. Now, Swiss researchers are developing new types of material surfaces to deny these stubborn germ cultures a breeding ground. Researchers at the University of Zurich develop extremely agile drones Researchers at the University of Zurich (UZH) have developed a system that enables flying robots to be very agile. A new type of camera allows autonomous drones to respond much faster than if they were controlled by a human pilot. University of Zurich teaches drones tricks Thanks to a navigation algorithm, drones are learning to autonomously perform acrobatic maneuvers. Using simulations, the autonomous aircraft are trained to become faster, more agile, and more efficient. Smart sanitary napkin monitors premature birth risk in pregnant women Researchers at the University Hospital and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) have developed an “intelligent” sanitary napkin to monitor the risk of premature birth. The aim is to avoid long hospital stays. ETH researchers produce fuel from sunlight and air Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH) have achieved a world première: They have developed a technology that produces carbon-neutral fuels using only sunlight and air. The solar refinery is already operating under real-life conditions. First microsurgery with robot Pioneering micro-surgery: At the University Hospital in Zurich, a patient was given the finest connections between lymph vessels and veins - by robot. Eye-tracking system facilitates pilot training Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a system to facilitate pilot training and thus make flying safer. The software uses eye-tracking to reveal perception gaps.
