Health Robotics Named to Top 50 World Robot Companies
BOZEN, SUD-TIROL, Italy, March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Health Robotics today announced that it received additional recognition (this time in the USA) for its global customer accomplishments by being named to the Robotics' Business Review Top 50 list.
The Robotics Business Review Top 50 list represents the most influential public and private companies in the global robotics industry. Innovation, groundbreaking application, commercial success and commercial potential are the factors used by the Robotics Business Review editorial team to select the RBR50, http://www.roboticsbusinessreview.com/rbr50
Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President, stated: "Mechatronicssolutions represent the future of intelligent machines, and Health Robotics is currently the only IV Robot company in the world receiving such international recognition. Adding RBR Top 50 to Health Robotics' global awards list represents a great source of pride for all of our customers and employees, especially as the only company based in Italy to make the world's Top 50."
Besides Health Robotics, Hansen Medical (Catheter-based Technologies), Intuitive Surgical (Surgery Technologies), Mako Surgical (Orthopedic Surgery Technologies), and Restoration Robotics (Aesthetic Surgery Technologies) also made the Top 50 list within the healthcare sector. Other prominent non-healthcare companies in the Top 50 list included Boeing, Denso, Epson, Honda, John Deere, and Toyota. Notably absent from the World Top 50 list were all of Health Robotics' competitors that have previously announced hospital installations.
Mr. DeViedma concluded: "Health Robotics recently reached 250 worldwide installations under contract [~½ IV Robots; ~½ clinical workflow software, approximately 10 times more IV Robot installations under contract than all of its worldwide competitors combined]. After it successfully migrated to its 2nd Generation modular architecture of networked medical devices, its solutions are fully automated, offer 3 to 4 times faster speed/throughput, less than half the price, size, and weight, and deliver payback periods/R.O.I. of less than 1 year."
