Robotics is already being developed for use in the medical and life sciences. It is possible to programme robots to carry out common surgical procedures. The advent of nanobiotechnology adds a new dimension to robotics, resulting in the creation of nanorobots, sometimes known as “nanobots.” Instead of providing treatments from outside the body, nanobots will be made smaller so they can be put inside the body through the vasculature or at the tip of catheters into various veins and other cavities. A human surgeon might use surgical nanobot to build an autonomous on-site surgeon inside the human body. An on-board computer may perform and coordinate a number of tasks, including pathological searching, diagnosis, lesion elimination or repair utilising nanomanipulation. The creation of “smart” molecularly scaled functional systems is referred to as nanobot engineering. Nanotechnology is outlined as “the design, modelling, output, and application of formations, machines, and structures which creates structures, devices, and systems with at least one novel/superior characteristic or property.” Nanotechnology is the careful manipulation of size and shape at the nanoscale dimensions.

Nanobots are very small sized robots having 50-100 nm width and they specific in performing the task. They are best choice for drug delivery .Generally if we take any medicienes that medicine have to travel in side the body and ultimately reaches to the site of action. Site specific targetting can be effectively achived using nanobot technology thus lowering the events of various side effects and adverse effect linked to pharmacological activity of drugs. Nanobots provides an approach towards blood glucose monitoring that could avoid frequent peircing through needle that is been linked with conventional blodd glucose level monitoring system.

Kalinga Plus is an initiative by Kalinga University, Raipur. The main objective of this to disseminate knowledge and guide students & working professionals.
This platform will guide pre – post university level students.
Pre University Level – IX –XII grade students when they decide streams and choose their career
Post University level – when A student joins corporate & needs to handle the workplace challenges effectively.
We are hopeful that you will find lot of knowledgeable & interesting information here.
Happy surfing!!
