The Future of Robotics and Healthcare
The 2020 pandemic has challenged our healthcare systems but it has also opened the door to a greater acceptance of robots and automation. What will the future of robotics and healthcare look like? One can imagine visiting a hospital in the not too distant future where in an operating room a robotic nurse assists a surgeon; in another a robot is performing the surgery teleoperatively. After surgery is done, a cleaning robot enters to quickly disinfect the operating room and get ready for the next procedure. Down the hall, a post-op patient is learning how to strap on a soft exoskeleton robot for guiding their customized rehabilitation program. They will take the robot with them at discharge and rehab in the comfort of their own home. In the clinic, a patient is waiting to receive a newly prescribed drug. Do they know that a drug discovery lab was able to use robotics and automation to rapidly screen millions of cells with different compounds in order to discover this new treatment? Similarly, automation was used to streamline the processing of thousands of daily patient samples to test for a potentially deadly air-borne virus. Please join us for this webinar on the Future of Robotics and Healthcare, where we have assembled a distinguished panel of experts with perspectives from academia and industry, to discuss these topics and how far they are from becoming reality.
