Robotics in Healthcare - Thematic Research


Increasingly, robots are seen as a solution to many of the structural problems facing the developed world-sagging productivity, aging populations, swelling healthcare budgets, and even epidemics of depression and an increasingly fragmented society. Of course, not everyone shares this view, and many are worried about the impact of robotics on employment and social structures.

Whatever you think of robotics, they are causing a revolution. Software and processing technology, sensors, commercial drones, autonomous vehicles, and developments around collaborative robots (co-bots) are all pushing robotics capabilities to new heights and driving uptake of millions of consumer, entertainment, service, and industrial robots.

Healthcare systems across the world are becoming increasingly overwhelmed because of increasing populations, particularly the growing elderly population. Robotics can offer solutions that could relieve these increased burdens through the development of exoskeletons to ease the stress on caregivers and autonomous humanoid care robots designed to interact directly with patients.

Robotics have been involved in the improvement of clinical outcomes since the 1980s when they were first introduced to the operating room. With the continued development of more sophisticated and autonomous robots, they are becoming commonplace in hospitals.
