5 Robotics companies taking the medical industry by storm

H Robotics handshake
The healthcare industry has taken a rapid shift towards a more prevalent usage of robotics, transforming healthcare as we know it. With its wide application scope from clinical usage, to surgical and even modular, robotics has proven to be a great advantage in the medical field. 

The question you may be pondering upon: what does robotics bring to the table? The answer is simple: top-quality patient care and efficient clinical workflows. When it comes to performing routine tasks, autonomous robots have the upper hand, allowing staff to engage more with the patient instead. Surgical robots also offer extremely high precision on top of increased speed and accuracy during intricate surgical procedures. These procedures include minimally invasive surgery as well as orthopedic surgery. 

The telemedicine involved allows the data collection process to be much more advanced and efficient, resulting in better data analysis. Robotics also plays a large role when it comes to creating a sanitary and safe working environment, which is vital in healthcare and even more so since the COVID-19 pandemic struck the world.

If those reasons weren’t enough to get you on board the process of welcoming robotics into healthcare, it has become particularly advantageous for the involvement of robots in rehabilitation treatments. With greater accessibility to physical therapy for patients and a shortened recovery period, modular robots have taken the rehabilitation industry by storm.

1. Hocoma | Gait Training - Walking

Hocoma has developed a range of innovative robotic therapy devices for patients in all mobility stages, from the early to later stages of movement rehabilitation. Their sensor-based technology covers strenuous activities, leaving physicians more time to attend to their patients. The company has made pioneering advancements in movement therapy, especially in the gait and balance rehabilitation field. Hocoma developed the Lokomat and Andago robotic devices for this exact purpose. 

2. ROMTech | PortableConnect® technology

Telemedicine has become more acknowledged in recent years. ROMTech has developed the adaptive PortableConnect® technology, allowing patients to undergo physical therapy in the comfort of their own homes. However, this form of therapy stands apart from any conventional therapeutic treatment. 

This device has revolutionized orthopedic care by increasing the range of motion for patients recovering from hip or knee surgery. This occurs at an accelerated rate when compared to standard care results. The PortableConnect® collects the data, allowing the physician to efficiently and accurately keep track of the recovery process. 

3. Ekso Bionics | EksoNR©

Ekso Bionics has been developing wearable exoskeleton products for over 15 years. With their years of expertise in working with exoskeleton technology, the company aims to make a difference in the lives of millions across the globe who suffer from mobility loss or paralysis. 

The EksoNR© device is designed for the lower extremities. The technology aims to bring hope to patients suffering from mobility and/or function loss as a result of a spinal impairment.  EksoNR© enables patients to exceed their own limits and regain their balance, strength, and coordination.  

4. Harmonic Bionics | Harmony SHR™

Harmonic Bionics has brought about an innovative robotic device that focuses on the upper- extremities, with the aim of improving the quality of life for all patients. 

The Harmony SHR™ device is an exoskeleton that has multiple purposes, which include rehabilitation. The dynamic technology is designed for customization in order to re-gain upper body mobility. As the treatment is patient-specific, the therapeutic method is much more efficient and effective. Additionally, the multi-planar composition of the robotic system creates a natural range of motion. 

5. H Robotics | rebless 

H Robotics is made up of a team of passionate innovators who strive to make a difference in the lives of millions around the world through developing a unique Smart rehabilitation solution: the rebless™ device. The technology brings a better quality of life for those with limited motor function as a result of musculoskeletal and/or neurological conditions. 

The device is designed to treat both the upper and lower extremities; the elbow, wrist, ankle, and knee joints. There are different modes available based on the patient’s abilities, allowing a customizable treatment for exach individual patient. The treatment can be adjusted accordingly during the recovery period depending on health and the progression made throughout. With greater accessibility to therapy, the rehabilitation sessions are much more frequent than any conventional method. This promotes an accelerated recovery, bringing patients back to their normal lives much earlier than expected.  

Not only is the data available to the physician to efficiently track the recovery progression, but the patient themselves are also able to view their own progress through the rebless app. This is in hopes of increasing hope and motivation, all towards achieving a speedy recovery. 

Physician appointments are available online, which creates a more accessible healthcare system for patients. With rebless™, patients can return to their normal lives as soon as possible. 

Restore, Rebuild, with rebless.
