robot

a form of programmable automatic machine that performs repetitive PRODUCTION tasks in place of human operatives on a PRODUCTION LINE. Robots can be used for tasks such as welding or spray painting, which can be unhealthy for human operatives to perform, and assembly tasks, which can be performed more rapidly and consistently than by human workers. The use of robots can therefore improve the PRODUCTIVITY of production operations and the QUALITY of products.

From zippers to life jackets, foghorns to toboggans, Buckley's mixture to the Canadarm and electric wheelchairs to telesurgery, Canada is responsible for a myriad of innovations that help humanity and are utilized worldwide.
It is a telesurgery system that allows the surgeon to perform while in a location other than the operation room.13 It has the benefitting ability to be able to perform stereo-tactic and microsurgical procedures with real time MRI.14 It was built to bear within strong magnetic fields allowing for high quality MRI intra-operatively without having to interfere with the procedure.15 The system is capable of performing needle insertion, cutting, cauterisation and irrigation microsurgically while simultaneously obtaining an MRI.
It involves knowing the medical applications of telemedicine, knowing telemedicine infrastructure, knowing telemedicine tools (such as telesurgery and teleconsultation), and knowing the effect of telemedicine on quality of care, cost, and time.
Herein, medical images already play an important role in teleradiology and telesurgery applications, for the identification of potential diseases as well as for therapy.
Though examinations of the potential impact of telesurgery tend toward the especially dramatic, the possibilities of the technology are both more wide-ranging and comparatively mundane.

Whether dealing with military intelligence, corporate secrets shared between two (or more) company offices, remote control of vital national infrastructure components such as power and traffic control systems, or mechanical instructions transmitted to off-site medical devices for telesurgery, device updates, and health reports, there are many situations where the rapid, accurate, and secure transmission of information between two parties is a basic necessity.

Also, they have legalized the provision of better speeds to innovative services like IPTV or telesurgery on the condition that they may come only on top of the existing free internet, not as a substitute.
