Memphis Daily News, April 28, 2008

A robot in a lab at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is making spinal medicine more precise. The robot combines off-the-shelf hardware used in structural engineering that has been modified by University professors or grad students. Proprietary software drives the system. Since its development, the robot has been used frequently to study the performance potential of artificial spinal discs.
