Robotics support systems in surgery or rehabilitation are no science fiction scenarios anymore. There are already robotics based systems at place and operational for e.g. the physiological recovery of post heart attack patients in rehabilitation centres or at home or surgeon assisted robots at the operation theatre. According to Winter Green Research, the business volume is estimated at 1.8 Billion $. However, there is still a large potential both in research as well as in product design and optimisation. At the human-machine interface, it is expected that ground breaking laboratory experimentations will be introduced to the market in the near future.
The Robotics for Health: Franco-German partnering event, taking place on 26th March 2015 in Karlsruhe, is your opportunity to identify and connect with future partners to explore venues of collaboration. The conference offers you a platform to get insights about the newest discoveries as to applications of robotics in the healthcare sector and discuss your research ideas as well as pitch your business case to potential partners, be it research or business.
