Robotics brings many benefits to the healthcare sector. In the operating room, robotic surgical aids allow practitioners to perform more precise procedures (that sometimes they could not do manually), and also less invasive for patients. Patients recover faster and better from their surgeries, they require less hospitalization time which generates savings and allows treating a larger number of patients. Robotics is also present in the corridors of hospitals where mobile robots take care of the transport of medicines from the central pharmacy to the rooms, thus avoiding several kilometers of walking for the nursing staff who can spend more time with the patients. Some robots are used to disinfect rooms between patients, especially when disinfection is done with high-powered UV lamps that are not compatible with the presence of staff in the room. Robots can also be used at the hospital reception to direct visitors to the right departments. There are in fact a multitude of applications that are feasible for robots in the healthcare sector and whose goal is to assist healthcare workers so that they can focus on essential medical procedures and spend more time with patients, with the robots complementing the practitioner or relieving them of necessary but non-technical tasks.
At Robotics Place, we have created a cluster dedicated to health care where 25 of our members who are involved in this sector are grouped together. They include research laboratories, international companies and start-ups in surgical robotics, logistics robotics companies with applications in this field, design offices that design robot subassemblies and manufacturers of robots or components used in healthcare.
The nerve center of this cluster is located in the Metropolis of Montpellier, which is home to the oldest medical school in the world and the highest concentration of surgical robotics companies in France. The LIRMM laboratory, a member of Robotics Place, already has a center of excellence in surgical robotics in the Faculty of Medicine of Montpellier where research on future surgical robots is carried out in collaboration with professors of medicine.
