NEW YORK, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Robots have increasingly become important in the field of surgical interventions due to growing complexity of surgical procedures for difficult diseases, and greater demand towards minimal invasive surgery. This research service highlights technological advances and innovations in surgical robots. The R&D network driving the growth of surgical robot industry is also analysed. Research finds out that the innovation ecosystem of surgical robot industry is a conglomeration of companies, universities, research institutes, and governmental organizations that collaborate and co-ordinate to support new inventions. The research service covers drivers and challenges of surgical robot industry and the enabling technologies. It focuses on the emerging technologies which are set to change the paradigm of surgical robots, and finally a detailed strategic assessment of the industry environment and recommendations enabling the surgical robots of future.
With the increasing complexity of surgical procedures for difficult diseases, and greater demand toward minimal invasive surgery, robots have become increasingly important in the field of surgical interventions.
- Surgical robots, which are computer-assisted electromechanical devices used in surgeries, can perform tasks with great geometric accuracy and precision. They can work through tiny incisions, without any tremors, and reduce procedural time. They can perform minimal invasive surgery even in anatomical areas that are difficult to reach.
Surgical robots can be used for various indications, ranging from orthopedic, gastrointestinal, obstetrics/ gynecological surgery to very delicate and precise neurosurgery or even microsurgery in ocular applications.
- The advanced surgical robots have several innovative technologies in each of its components. The industry has witnessed several advancements in guidance system, types of sensors used, instrumentation of the end effectors and also in simulation for training surgeons.
The innovation ecosystem of surgical robot industry is a conglomeration of companies, universities, research institutes, and governmental organizations that collaborate and co-ordinate to support new inventions. Sometimes universities or research institutes with commercial interest, spin out to form entrepreneurial companies.
- Several research projects funded by government or funding agencies are home to some major innovations in the surgical robot industry.
Some of the major challenges are high installation costs, larger footprint, difficulty to integrate in existing operating room, and possibility of malfunction which can risk the patient's life.
- However, these limitation can be overcome by using improved instrumentation, better sensors, miniaturization, better flexibility and visualization and much more.
