Medical Robots and Simulations Train Caregivers and Heal Patients

— September 8, 2010 — Tech
Medical robots and simulations are high tech solutions to health care problems and their sheer number and range of application is amazing.

From training caregivers to assisting in rehabilitation and therapy, medical robots and simulations have become an important part of modern-day medical practice. Not only do they save lives and make care-giving easier, they often provide greater precision and better results than humans can without their help.

Implications - With many countries experiencing a graying population and soaring health costs, medical automation holds the potential for more immediate response, fewer medical errors, and lowered health cost. All of these factors contribute to a long shelf life for medical automation .
