Healthcare in the U.S. is approaching $4 trillion annually. To support, enhance, and mitigate the healthcare burdens, our healthcare system is witnessing robotic medical technology entering hospital surgical suites, in-patient rooms, in-home patient care, and uses with emergency services and vehicles.
Increasingly, this new unfolding healthcare scenario is looked upon both as a wellspring of new robotic care and healing innovations and also as a near bewildering array of complex medical devices needing careful integration into the healthcare system.
Robotics hold the promise of addressing major healthcare issues in surgery, diagnostics, prosthetics, physical and mental therapy, monitoring, and support. Where are the challenges and where are the advances being made?
