Robotics is an integral part of modern medicine and it is a recent phenomenon as compared to developments that have taken place in other industries. Medical robotics is helpful in training future medical professionals and providing comfort and care to elderly patients. The other benefits of medical robotics are the high precision, reduced hospital stay and smaller incisions. Moreover, it gives a real-life experience to future doctors since this technology involves robots mimicking a patient’s feelings. Although it is gaining popularity in the medical sector, the initial set-up cost is high, and it takes considerable time to get the necessary regulatory approvals. These are the factors hampering the growth of the medical robotics market.
