Thanks to AR, surgeons no-longer have to be in the same room as their patients.

Undergraduate and graduate students from WSU and other universities gathered for the CARES presentation in 1500 Engineering Auditorium on Friday.

CARES is a technology program under the Smart Sensors and Integrated Microsystems Center at WSU. Utilising CARES, surgeons can operate remotely on a patient, using tactile sensors and remote viewing.

Various research projects under CARES involve everythiung from tactile feedback sensitive enougfh to tell a surgeon how much force a given tissue will take - to systems which cancel out the effects of shaky hands on the augmented arm actually doing the cutting - allowing for far neater incisions than are possible in hands on.
