Nanobots: The Future Of Medical Treatments

[Full Text]



Somanna M B



Index Terms: nanobot, membranes, drug delivery system.



Abstract: Nanobots will help bridge the technological gaps between physics, chemistry and biology on the nano-scale. This will lead to many innovative approaches which will result in new methods and products for both, technological and medical-pharmaceutical applications. In this report the following questions are addressed: How a nanobot works and how nanobots can contribute to medical technology. Advancement in technology is essential for the treatment of many problems such as implants related to bones and membranes. Furthermore nanobots are good candidates for these complex treatments with their size being very small. Nanobots are also considered and some are already in use as drug delivery systems and contrast agents. It is argued that coated nanobots functionalized with target molecules are interacting with external devices offering real prospective for medical applications.
