Employment of robotically assisted surgery to intelligently conduct invasive or non-invasive medical procedures has become a mainstay in operating rooms around the world. This technology was developed to provide a uniform and precise standard for the purpose of reducing or eliminating surgically instigated tissue trauma associated with human hand tremors and/or lesser skilled surgeons.
Whether the surgeon is remotely conducting a cardiac bypass operation from the next room or remotely replacing a kidney in Texas while sitting in Massachusetts, robotically assisted surgery has revolutionized the way doctors and surgeons master their given craft.
What if the same robotic reliability and quality assurance could be applied to the emergency medical ambulatory process?
Imagine the implementation of an unmanned aerial system (UAS) capable of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) designated for on-call medical evacuation scenarios on the battlefield and in areas considered too remote or austere for traditional aeromedical evacuation helicopters like the US Army’s infamous “Dust Off”.
