The world went mad with a “medical suucer” in the early 2000s, but this is a relatively new trend.
A team of engineers from the University of Michigan have built a robot that is capable of pumping air out of a human’s body, essentially a heart.
Here’s how the team got there.

The robotic arm was built using a machine called a bionic lung, which is basically a miniature tube with a mechanical valve.
In this case, the valve is attached to a small robotic arm inside the lung.
When the valve closes, air is pumped into the lungs.
“We’ve developed this technology that basically allows us to pump air directly into the lung, and then it goes directly into your bloodstream and out into your body,” lead engineer, Dr. Ryan Kosti, told ABC News.
Kosti explained the team is working to improve on the design of the valve and its capabilities to operate.
“If you’re trying to pump a lot of air into the human body, the only way to do that is to use a valve, and that’s what we’re doing here,” Kosto told ABC.
The bionic valve is able to pump the volume of air in a person, or the volume in a chamber, without needing to use an external pump.
That’s important because the valve has to be designed to be stable, so it’s unlikely to rupture.
“The design is so well designed that if it did break, it wouldn’t cause any harm,” Kasti said.
The team also built a system that can actually pump the air out and into the bloodstream.
That means that if the valve were to fail, it would not cause any injury, Kostis said.
That, combined with a pump that’s stable and can withstand high pressures, will allow the valve to be used in hospitals and other medical facilities.
The team says the bionic pump can be used for breathing in people who are ill.
“This valve is designed to work on a human, not a machine, so if we could make a mechanical arm that worked in a lab and not in a hospital, that would really solve the problem,” KOSTI told ABC, adding that the team will work on developing a device that would be used to pump an air stream into a human.
The robot, named “Bionic Lung,” is about two inches (5 centimeters) long and weighs about 50 pounds.
It was built to work with human subjects who were undergoing chest surgery and had to undergo an oxygen saturation test.
It’s not clear when the team plans to make the robot available for sale to the general public.
The company says it hopes to release the bionics-based medical sucer next year.
