The first prototypes for medical robots were developed in 1985 as part of university and research projects. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) expects an annual growth rate of medical service robots of around 31% in the professional segment and around 26% in the consumer segment by 2023. In the medical robotics segment, the portfolio of robotic surgical solutions offers the highest unit sales at around 51%.
Dynamism and innovation – characteristics that distinguish and set the medical technology industry apart. This is illustrated on the one hand by the high number of patent applications and on the other hand by the introduction of innovative and future-oriented products on the market. One product range that is currently revolutionising medical technology and the entire health sector is medical robots and robotic assistance systems. With increasing shortages of medical professionals, medical robots can compensate for bottlenecks while maintaining or even optimising quality standards.
