The robotic arm "SR-NOCS" is located in an all-round enclosed cabin. The swaps, which must be inserted into the persons nose and mouth, are operated by foot pedals and the process can be paused and restarted at any time. 

This automated system is a good example of how these agile cobots can be programmed to do delicate tasks that require high accuracy and sensitivity.
