The medical robotics industry has undergone striking development since its introduction in the mid-1980s. From the introduction of robots to perform basic activities such as assistance in surgical procedures and endoscopy, medical robots are now integrated in a wide range of applications such as neurosurgeries, microsurgeries, radiology, emergency response, and prosthetics and in non-medical applications in hospitals. Medical robots can be classified on the basis of various principles such as kinematics, targeted anatomy, level of automation and the intended operation environment.
Currently a wide range of medical robots are commercially available and large scale research is being conducted to introduce breakthrough technologies in them. In addition, many of the medical robots commercially available are mainly concentrated in the developed markets. Efforts are being taken by medical robot manufacturers to enter the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa.
It is proven that through robotic assistance the outcomes of complex surgical procedures improve, the risk of patient trauma declines and the duration of hospital stay reduces. Though the concept of medical robots is old, it is still viewed to be at a nascent stage in the healthcare technology market.
