«This novel, non-invasive intervention has been tried and tested for the first time by scientists from Essex’s School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering. In a journal publication, microrobotics expert and lead scientist Dr Ali Hoshiar explained how, after the initial injection, the swarm can be directed towards the blockage with a powerful magnet to abrade the calcified sediment, removing it entirely. The researchers also found a direct link between the strength of the magnetic field, the speed of magnet movement, and the rate of abrasion by the microbots.»
