The Hospital of the Futurefamily icon

Welcome to the hospital of the future.

Come along to glimpse the future of medicine, where robots play a very important role – from surgical robots and robotic human simulators, to 3D printed body parts.

This display showcases the latest technologies in advanced 3D printing of replacement body parts, bionics, and surgical robotics. Here you will see one of our research-class biofabrication machines in action: using tens of thousands of volts and robotic precision to produce 3D plastic scaffolds out of fibres much thinner than a human hair.
