The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that about “10 percent of the global population—about 650 million people—have disabilities.
Making the disabled “able” again. Are wearable robots ready to disrupt the global wheelchair industry, take the “dis” out of disabled, and democratize healthcare to the handicapped at the same time?
Seems to be already happening. Join Tom Green and Lux Research analyst, Maryanna Saenko, for perspectives on the gathering storm of healthcare robotics pushing its way into the global healthcare industry. Join Tom and Maryanna for an analysis of the path to market for these technologies and the resulting market size of rehabilitative robotics.
How medical robotic systems will come to market depends on the current state of the technology, regulatory approval, and cost of these systems relative to gains in quality of life and reduction in health maintenance costs.
