Task 1: Option 2


An innovative use of digital technology being used to solve a problem is the use of robotic surgical arms employed to perform complex operations such as heart surgery.

This is particularly interesting to me as I had open heart surgery myself using the traditional methods and whilst it went well, it is fascinating to see how much technology can improve this area. The use of the robot allows for more precision leading to safety and minimal scarring, shorter hospital stays and less risk of infections, among many other factors. This technology could also be widely applicable in remote areas where the nearest health professionals and specialists may reside hours away – surgery can be commenced remotely without having the added risks of moving the patient. There are many medical articles on the topic, though the one listed above is simplified for the average reader.
