The achievements of Fred Moll in medical robotics are close to legendary but the collaboration of Dr. Moll with Johnson & Johnson, may raise the bar, with real-time management of the data feeds informing the robotics applications - the next frontier...
Challenging dominant Intuitive Surgical, many robotics systems are coming to market but the vast ambitions of Auris Health stand out and Verb Surgical, a Google / Johnson & Johnson partnership, is waiting in the wings
Confronted with the challenge of robotic procedures, orthopedic device majors take comfort with technological evolution, on step at a time while innovation in robotic surgery is a revolution the dominant players must join or face oblivion
With an extended, and unusual, lag in responding to the challenge, the 20-year old robotic industry Intuitive created single-handedly is about to confront a wave of novel alternatives
Out with the old... By reinventing robotics with visualization, advanced instrumentation, data analytics, and connectivity, all things digital introduce a new era
Unfazed by critics about the cost of robotic surgery and the medical procedures where robotization makes a difference, Intuitive Surgical is a platform and its success incontrovertible evidence transforming the medical devices industry
Expected to deliver on the quality of healthcare and on faster post-surgical operation recovery, medical robotics will also have to satisfy complex requirements such as integration of the data stream related to the patient and overall cost efficiency
Robotic applications in the surgical and medical fields open opportunities for equipment makers outside the segment of established medical device suppliers
