Technology has brought us driverless cars, love-bots, robo-cops and now, robo-docs.
Currently, thousands of robots are already engaged in medical activities, mostly related to diagnosis, health monitoring, surgery and even with the recovery of patients.
While it’s expected that the robotic sector will see significant growth over the next five years, there are still concerns about the accuracy of the machines when operating without the assistance of human specialists.
The presence of robots in medicine has already been a reality for several years. The global medical robotic systems market was valued at $7.47 million in 2014 and the sales of medical robots reached 1,224 units worldwide in the same year.
