When asked about robots, most of the people start imagining about R2D2, a fictional robot character from Star Wars. Robots have gained immense popularity in the last few years and apart from the sci-fi movies, they are now making a big impact in the medtech sector.
From performing surgeries in tiny places, relieving medical personnel from routine tasks, to making medical procedures safer, robots are taking on more challenging tasks in today’s medical applications with their improved capabilities. Robotic-assisted surgical procedures, medicine dispensing, and rehabilitation and movement therapy where robotics assist the patient are benefitting from the latest robot technologies.
The use of robots in the field of medicine is a growing trend that seems to be gaining momentum in recent years. From the first robotic surgical assistant more than a decade ago, to new research today, the use of robotics in healthcare is advancing rapidly. Over the years, researchers have introduced a number of innovative enhancements to medical robotics, designed to improve the quality of care, assist with various therapies, and deliver direct patient care.
Even though the technology is expensive and some of it is years from being implemented, the use of robots is changing healthcare and—in ways we can only imagine— will continue to do so.
