The medical industry is witnessing revolutionary changes in the application of healthcare innovations like robotics. Several advancements in today’s technology arena have led to the improvement of healthcare delivery, especially with the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Robotics is always considered to be an unbeatable tool for reducing difficulty and complexity of manual works. Even though a robot cannot substitute a human entirely, its outcomes are impressive. A robot, an accurate non-living human, can do tons of works effectively, efficiently, and accurately.
Robots stand for an image of the future. In production or manufacturing, robots have been employed since the 1960s to enhance accuracy and efficiency. This same perspective exists in healthcare. From the $20 billion market cap of Intuitive Surgical, these days, less than 2 percent of surgeries are done robotically.
The remote-controlled robots help surgeons by performing operations or surgeries. Supplementary applications for these surgical-assistant robots are frequently industrial, as more sophisticated 3D HD technology provides surgeons with the spatial references required for complicated surgery, as well as more improved natural stereo visualization.
The U.S. army has founded the Raven surgical robotic platform, which facilitates telerobotic surgery, the concept of a highly trained and well-educated surgeon in one location performing surgery on a patient in another location using robotics. The Harward Biorobotics Lab leverages the Raven’s open source software for performing breathing heart cardiac surgery with the help of using real-time 3-D ultrasound imaging.
The price of robotics shows a downward shift due to an increasing level of competition and improved production efficiency. Emerging robotics competitors like Titan Medical and Medrobotics creates more flexible and efficient robots or medical robotic equipment that contributes more to the field of robotics in the medical field. Even the Da Vinci robot is going to be lesser expensive soon, because of the lack of monopoly. Beyond all, robotics will continue to add huge value to the field of health and wellness, as it does now, and will enhance the way care is provided.
