Our Innovation Analysts recently looked into emerging technologies and up-and-coming startups in the healthcare industry. As there is a large number of startups working on a wide variety of solutions, we decided to share our insights with you. This time, we are taking a look at 4 promising robotics solutions.
Heat Map: Top 4 Robotics Startups
For our 4 picks of robotics startups, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 4 interesting examples out of 590 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
Titan Medical – Surgical Robots
The ability to manipulate a sophisticated robotic arm by operating controls combined with augmented reality gives surgeons better conditions for highly complex surgeries. Titan Medical’s SPORT Surgical System is a versatile single incision advanced robotic platform that features multi-articulated instruments with unique replaceable tips. It also features 3D visualization on a high definition flat-screen monitor, highly ergonomic open workstation with natural surgeon interface, and a single low-profile patient cart for ease of set up that enables broad applications of single and multi-quadrant surgeries.
EGZOTech – Rehabilitation Robotics
Rehabilitation robots with integrated sensors and advanced interaction control schemes aim for the recovery of patients through disinfecting body parts and continuously monitoring and adapting their support to the actual state of the patients. Polish EGZOTech produces Luna EMG — a rehabilitation robot for neurological and orthopedic patients, that uses reactive electromyography to train the sensorimotor cortex.
Diligent Robotics – Service Robots
Service robots are designed to assist clinical staff with logistical tasks and deliver supplies, medications, meals, etc. Service robots are able to perform these tasks because they combine artificial intelligence and advanced indoor navigation systems. The US-based Diligent Robotics develops Moxi, a socially intelligent healthcare service robot that helps nurses with their non-patient facing logistical tasks. This includes gathering and delivering supplies for new patient admissions, delivering lab samples, and carrying linen.
Multi Tower – Patient Transfer Robots
Patient transfer devices in the healthcare setting help in the transport of a patient from one position or place to another as a smarter alternative to ceiling rails using collapsible. Patient transfer robots are multi-functional with an adaptive telescopic structure and advanced navigation capabilities. Denmark-based Multi Tower manufactures mobile, flexible, and modular robots for safe patient lifting and moving in hospitals, daycare, and rehab. Due to an omnidirectional wheel system, they are able to maneuver in confined and obstructed areas.
