Robotics is one of the most exciting and rapidly growing fields in healthcare, with advancements ranging from robot companions to surgical robots to pharmabotics, disinfectant robots, and exoskeletons.
Europe witnessed first exoskeleton-assisted surgery and a tetraplegic man capable of controlling an exoskeleton with his brain! There are numerous other applications for these sci-fi suits, ranging from assisting nurses in lifting elderly patients to assisting patients with spinal cord injuries.
Robot companions have a place in healthcare as well, to help alleviate loneliness, treat mental health issues, and even assist children with chronic illnesses. The Jibo, Pepper, Paro, and Buddy robots are all existing examples. Some of them even have touch sensors, cameras, and microphones to allow their owners to interact with them. For example, ikki, an Australian startup, helps children with chronic illnesses monitor their medications, temperature, and breathing rate while entertaining them with music and stories.
The global medical robotics market is expected to reach $20 billion by 2023, indicating tremendous growth in the industry.
