For years, doctors, researchers and engineers have developed incredible ways to restore function to paralyzed limbs. The goal has always been to improve the quality of life of patients. People whose spinal cord is damaged can now use implants, electrical stimulation, exoskeletons and virtual reality therapy.
Advances in this area are increasing. A team of scientists has combined artificial intelligence and robotics to help people with spinal cord injuries. This is the first time that researchers have used both technologies to develop a new treatment.
The two technologies have been combined to stabilize an enzyme. If not managed well, it can cause the breakdown of scar tissue from spinal cord injuries. The use of robotics as well as artificial intelligence has also helped promote tissue regeneration. This ultimately made it possible to extend the duration of enzyme regulation to achieve greater results.
The researchers proceeded to use machine learning to find the most viable synthetic polymer in the human body. Robotics has made it possible to manipulate synthesized liquids and combined with artificial intelligence, researchers have thus been able to develop more suitable therapeutic proteins.
Admittedly, the use of new technologies opens up several paths to modern medicine. Unfortunately, enzyme stabilization is not yet an effective long-term treatment. The combination of these two technologies remains a promising avenue for tissue regeneration. Researchers will have to push the search a little further to find the right treatment.
Still, the experiment demonstrated the importance of using artificial intelligence and robotics to develop a treatment start that might work. Both technologies will be able to generate algorithms to find effective compositions. Thus, research will take less time and therapies will become more convenient.
