Using the robotic representation of a biological finger, 5G technology transmits the surgeon the sense of touch during operation, controlled and monitored through software-defined networking.
During the recent celebration of the event 5g World 2016At the end of last June at the Olympia in London, Ericsson and the King’s College they performed a demonstration of touch surgery 5 G with the robotic representation of a biological finger.
This catheter or robotic finger gives the surgeon of the sense of touch and allows you to detect the location accurately and in real time of hard nodules in the soft tissue in a minimally invasive procedure, as well as identify cancerous tissue and send information in the form of haptic feedback to the surgeon.
The Ericsson stand at this event, visitors could experience latency 5G to control movements of the robotic finger with a haptic glove. Once this catheter detects the hard tissue in the simulation, na haptic signal returns to the device of the user, as well as having contact with what is happening thanks to the close of a replica of soft tissue.
This demonstration of touch surgery 5G remote is made possible by networking software-defined, configured to provide the required quality of service using fractionation of network from end to end, one of the new concepts of the 5 G.
As pointed out by Valter D'Avino, director of Ericsson for Western and Central Europe, "through this demonstration of simulation 5 G put that latency is a critical part of what 5 G can offer, conveying both the sense of touch and a video signal in real time of surgery in remote".
Professor Mischa Dohler, head of the Center for Research in Telecommunications IT department of King's College London, said for his part that "the capacity of 5G able to develop advanced remote and minimally invasive surgery; the number of applications increases and the benefits are no longer limited geographically. 5G allows control and diagnostics scalability and global intervention.
