(PRWEB UK) 2 January 2013
According the latest report, Medical Robotics and Computer-Assisted Surgery: The Global Market, medical robotics and computer-assisted surgery (MRCAS) are being used in a growing number of operating rooms around the world, largely as a result of the growing popularity of minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques. Minimally invasive, or keyhole surgery is an alternative to traditional open-incision surgery in a growing number of procedures. MIS utilises special instruments that can be inserted and manipulated through small incisions under remote optical or video guidance, greatly reducing patient trauma and recovery times.
The need to perform delicate surgical procedures safely in tight spaces where the surgeon cannot directly see has created a growing market for devices that act as extensions of the surgeons eyes and hands: remote imaging, data processing and feedback, and robotics. Meanwhile, MRCAS technology has been evolving, as have the medical and economic environments in which it is used.
In such a fast-moving field, there is a pressing need to develop and maintain an up-to-date base of market information in order to better understand the dynamics of the market for MRCAS devices and equipment.
