InformationWeek Finds 10 Healthcare-Friendly Robots
Date:7/23/2014

NEW YORK, July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to welcoming our new robot overlords, InformationWeek editor David Wagner is ready to roll out the red carpet.

Healthcare is one of the major reasons to welcome an influx of HAL 9000-like robots into our human sphere. With healthcare concerns top of mind in the US right now, there's a pressing need to apply new technologies to help with old problems. That's where robots come in: The worldwide market for medical robotics is expected to increase from $1.7 billion now to $3.7 billion by 2018.

With those statistics in mind, Wagner went out to find the 10 most fascinating robots that are currently working in the healthcare field. While many robots are little more than fancy roll-carts that doctors or nurses can run by remote control, this InformationWeek article looks for the most technologically advanced robots one can find, including those that help amputees or fight cancer.

To check out the full list of healthcare robots, check out InformationWeek. Do you have a suggestion for one droid that was missed? Add it to the comments section of the article and let your voice be heard.
