Elysian Crown Company Golan Technologies announced this morning that they would be proceeding with plans to form a partnership with the Mindabaal League’s premier in medical sciences breakthroughs, Elite Medical Technologies which will see various changes in a robots role at the operating table, assisting surgeons conduct difficult procedures throughout the Galactic South West, where Golan Technologies factories are based. This change comes at a time when the dissemination of technology is slow to filter to the most remote worlds in the Galaxy where well trained surgeons are rare and far between, new technological breakthroughs made in the Yushan Sector has the potential to make robotics more affordable to the average despot and turn their untrained combat medics into surgeons, saving lives and revolutionizing the way treatment is given to patients. While more expensive to transport Coreward, analysts agree that this move could be felt as far as Coruscant and once contracts have been completed and signed to make the partnership official, both companies will see extensive economic growth once the first batches of surgeon equipment and robotics roll of the production lines.
This announcement has generally been well received by employees of both companies though fears have been raised by some in Elite Medical Technologies that by partnering with a business whose sole purpose until now has been the development of weapons and other machines of war, they may lose some of legitimacy as “Doctors First”. Meanwhile Golan Technologies sees this as a reason for further expansion into a new field of production, with plans from the Elysian Department of Infrastructure to earmark resources which will be dedicated to building additional facilities to accommodate the development of new medical products. However, before the plan can be set to motion, the Government of Elysia must first complete a full review of the agreement to ensure it will not directly affect any other smaller medical firms in the Crown’s Territory which could be very detrimental to businesses founded with the King’s blessing in other parts of the Kingdom.
In regards to the benefits of the technology itself, an Elite Medical Technologies representative stated the following; “It is our hope that by making these robots available in the operating room, surgeons will be able to conduct less invasive procedures which will leave fewer signs that a surgery was ever even done, cutting down on scarred tissues, making the surgery less painful if anesthetic is unavailable, and reducing the amount of time it takes for a patient’s recovery.” Golan will be providing expertise in the fields of real-time image analysis which can highlight objects like nerves, blood vessels, or even tumours and other growths that need to be removed to save a life with precision that only a well programmed droid can conduct, slicing down the amount of equipment required in the operating room considerably.
With so many changes that this partnership may bring to the Galactic Stage, many Science and Medical Community members will most assuredly be keeping a close eye on the future breakthroughs made by Elite Medical Technologies and Golan Technologies.
