A robotic small intestine? Researchers are making one
from University of Boulder Today
The day is coming when doctors-in-training can perfect certain medical practices on a robotic small intestine and test medical treatments on a human-made device vs. animals. Mechanical engineering associate professor Mark Rentschler is leading the effort to develop an artificial, robotic small intestine for use in medical laboratories. The research is supported by a $1.25 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
