Research and Markets: Robotic Surgery Equipment Manufacturing in the US

Robotic surgery, or computer-assisted surgery, involves the use of robotic systems to help in surgical procedures.

DUBLIN--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Analyzing Robotic Surgery Equipment Manufacturing in the US" report to their offering.

"Analyzing Robotic Surgery Equipment Manufacturing in the US"

With advances in technology, it was only a matter of time before robotic surgery became a popular concept in the world today. Robotic surgery, or computer-assisted surgery, involves the use of robotic systems to help in surgical procedures. Many robotically-assisted surgeries have been developed in order to get past the limitations of minimally invasive surgery and also enhance the capabilities of the surgeons who are performing the open surgery. Many times, performing robotically-assisted surgery increases the confidence of the surgeon as well as increases the success rate of the surgery.

Some of the major advantages of performing robotic surgery include precision, miniaturization, decreased loss of blood, less pain, smaller incisions, and a quicker healing time for the patient. Robotic surgery also decreases the duration of stay in the hospital, blood loss, and the use of pain medications.

This report provides complete coverage of the robotic surgery equipment market in the US. Beginning with an introduction to robotics, the report analyses the global robots industry and then moves to an analysis of the robotic surgery equipment manufacturing industry in the US.

This analysis of the industry includes industry definition, industry performance statistics, minimally invasive procedures and the use of robotic surgery in such procedures, the global and US demand for robotic surgery equipment, industry structure, industry products and services, an analysis of the industry supply chain, an analysis of the import/export scenario in the industry, and the impact of globalization on the industry.

Regulations governing this industry are quite strict and therefore have quite a bit of an impact of the industry and the major players. The report analyzes the regulatory framework impacting the US robotic surgery equipment manufacturing industry. Factors driving industry growth and industry trends are analyzed in the report, followed by an industry life cycle analysis and a look at the demand for robotic surgical equipment.

The major business hubs for robotic surgery equipment in the US are analyzed, followed by an analysis of the major markets for robotic surgical equipments. Competition in the industry is analyzed through a market share analysis, cost structure of major players, internal and external competition, and the barriers to entry.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
