Revolutionizing Healthcare: The Impact of Robotics on Health Services


  • Swathi Kaluvakuri Department of Computer Science, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Illinois, USA


Robotics in Healthcare, Robotic Surgery, Telemedicine, Rehabilitation Robotics, Remote Patient Monitoring


This in-depth essay investigates the revolutionary effects of robotics on the medical field, focusing on areas such as robotic surgery, telemedicine, rehabilitation robotics, and robotic prosthetics. Specifically, the article examines the uses of robotics in these areas. The study tackles better accuracy, enhanced patient experiences, skill augmentation, and ethical considerations in examining its substantial influence on patient outcomes and the professionals who provide healthcare. It explores problems, such as technological and legislative considerations, while imagining a future integrating artificial intelligence and human-robot collaboration. To successfully reach the goal of a seamless confluence of robotics and healthcare, multidimensional teamwork is required to optimize benefits and successfully negotiate ethical challenges.
