Xinhua News Agency is reporting that Harbin Polytechnic University has developed a robot that can help set bones, conduct surgeries and medical research.

The robot, developed by the polytechnic in northeast Heilongjiang Province, was created in collaboration with several other Chinese research bodies, including the robot institute of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. According to researchers, they have developed two types of robots–a mainframe built on a wholly digital platform to carry out medical research and track state-of-the-art technologies of the world, and a smaller system for clinical use.

To date, the smaller robot has helped conduct 21 bone-setting surgeries, all of which were successful.
