ACMIT took part in „Lange Nacht der Forschung 2014“ on April 4th 2014.

A nationwide open door event when science institutions and companies presented their research to the public. Around 500 visitors took the chance to have a look at an exhibition of research examples at ACMIT.

public research night.

Are you able to place a surgical needle exactly to the point?

ACMIT presented a robot which is able to place biopsy needles in brain surgery with highest possible precision. To see the difference visitors first tried to place a needle manually into a head phantom, then the robot took over – of course with unmatched precision.

Are you able to perfectly disinfect your hands?

Another development at ACMIT is Hand-in-Scan, a device for the immediate and objective assessment of hand hygiene. Visitors took a portion of a UV-dyed hand sanitizer solution (typically used in hospitals), followed the official WHO
hand rubbing steps shown on the device, inserted the hands into Hand-in-Scan, and within a few seconds, the system provided objective assessment of their performance based on digital imaging and advanced image processing algorithms. Over 250 persons used the chance to test their hygiene technique and discovered, which areas on their hands had not been treated perfectly.

Furthermore, intraocular lenses were exhibited and the eye cataract operation procedure was explained, the visitors could test their knowledge on surgical instruments in a quiz or watch a video demonstration of the robotic autopsy system (Virtobot).

The Visitors were very impressed about the state of the art in technology that ACMIT presented, the diversity of developments and their relevance for patients.
