  • KTH doubles capacity of ventilators

    With an urge to contribute and with the department's 3D printers, the Department for Production Engineering (IIP) has helped Karolinska Institutet to manufacture components that double the capacity of a ventilator.

  • Nanoparticles in emissions on researcher’s radar

    Nanoparticles are everywhere, but we don't know how many or how toxic they are to humans and nature. The nPETS project involves researchers from all over Europe who visit road tunnels and airports to study the sub 100 nm emissions.

  • Sensors improve life for amputees

    35 percent of the amputees reject prosthetics because they are too uncomfortable. By placing connected sensors in the prosthetic sockets, KTH will optimize the users' prostheses and also save large societal costs.

  • Industrial robots learn surgery

    Normally, they are used for heavy lifting and mounting components in factories. Now, KTH researchers are cooperating with the University of Tokyo to enable industrial robots to assist on surgical procedures.
