USING AI & ROBOTICS FOR 
MEDICAL PERCUSSION EXAMINATIONS

Liver enlargement and inflammation, also called hepatomegaly, is a significant indicator of the presence of a disease process. For years, clinicians have been using acoustic percussion to assess hepatic size. However, percussion can be seen as subjective and misleading or inaccurate.

There is an opportunity to develop an assistive, portable device that allows telemetry. In populations with a high percentage of elderly patients requiring frequent checks-up, remote assessment is key.
 

The project aims to mimic percussion from a trained doctor through the standardisation of the mechanical action (robotics) and explanatory AI models.
