Robotic intubation prototype crawls to the lungs in difficult situations (EurekAlert)
This month, graduates of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Biodesign program revealed a prototype called GuideIN Tube. GuideIN Tube is a robotic intubation device that automatically identifies the lungs using an infrared source and navigates toward it. The device was successfully tested on cadavers at the Hadassah Medical Center, and clinical trials will begin as soon as next year.
