From Star Wars to the Terminator series, robots have awesome abilities—often exceeding those of mere humans. But reality has not caught up with the vision of science fiction writers. In the medical device sector, robots are mainly used for assembly applications or robotic-assisted surgeries.
It would be a mistake to assume that robots will always be constrained to menial tasks such as sorting parts or giving a surgeon superhuman dexterity. In the future, look for robots to take on much more active role in healthcare technology.
