Impact of COVID-19 on Medical Robotics Market

COVID19 has positively impacted on the demand for medical robots across various applications. The interest amongst users for robotics has increased as it avoids person-to-person contact and can reduce the transmission of the virus among healthcare workers as well as patients. Moreover, the use of telemedicine has witnessed sharp increase during the period of pandemic as it allows doctors and nurses to communicate with patients without any physical contact. It has been observed that, many medical facilities across the globe are using autonomous robots to disinfect hospital rooms with UV lights, deliver food & medicine to patients, transfer specimen samples, monitor patients’ health, and greet them without causing any spread of infection. Medical robots from companies such as VGo, Double Robotics, and Beam are frequently being used in hospitals, in-home remote consultation, nursing schools.

For instance, during COVID19 period, healthcare facilities in Italy started using mobile telepresence robots equipped with video screens and user-friendly touchscreen interface to monitor patients’ health without any physical contact. As per the leading CXOs in the industry, the collaboration between humans, robots, and AI is long term. Although the surge in adoption of medical robots has been sharp since the COVID19 pandemic, it is expected to have a lasting impact. Only restraining factors are the cost of implementation and excessive use of robotics for ICUs in the hospitals as patients in a serious condition may react differently to a robot caretaker.

For the supply side of the industry, the COVID19 outbreak has negatively affected the manufacturing of medical robots. Although the demand witnessed for medical robots was high for certain applications, manufacturers of the medical robots suffered severe losses due to current economic disruptions such as international ban on trade, unavailability of labors, and economic downfall of few countries. However, the scenario is expected to regain momentum soon.

Advancements in technologies such as Cloud technologies, AI & Big Data has increased the development and adoption of medical robotics

Medical robots are used in broad range of medical diagnostics and treatment along with other applications. The use of big data in health care has various benefits. Algorithms implementing HIPAA regulated data collection via cloud-based applications is anticipated to boost the development of advanced healthcare robotics. For instance, surgical robots like daVinci are able to connect to the Cloud to provide assistance in surgical procedures by mining the large sets of MRI data associated with patient having similar medical history. These advanced technologies enable robots to access the data stored on personal Cloud that is connected to patient’s fitness band or smartphone in case of emergency.

However, the increasing use of big data and Cloud technologies has significantly raised security and privacy concerns. Patients’ personal information along with their medical history can be accessed by a medical robot, which can get compromised. Nonetheless, with appropriate regulatory framework and security measures, key players can manage to minimize the security threats.
