Medical robots — robotic machines utilized in health sciences — can be categorized into three main classes: medical devices including surgery robotic devices, diagnosis, and drug delivery devices; assistive robotics, e.g., wearable robots and rehabilitation devices; and robots emulating the human body including (prostheses, artificial organs, exoskeletons, etc.).
Since their inception, medical robots have been increasingly used to perform more and more health tasks. Compared to manual healthcare machines, medical robotic systems offer a wide range of advantages — they’re flexible; can be programmed to perform myriad tasks; are more versatile, cost effective, and precise; and eliminate the human-fatigue factor.
