Spine Surgical Robotics Market Size/Status Prospect Analysis


Spine surgery robot is an emerging medical equipment, which can be controlled by computer program to realize precise surgical operation. Currently, domestic spine robots are successfully used in clinical practice, and Perlove medical spine surgery robots make surgery more precise and safer.

Due to the intersection of various factors such as economic and social development, aging population, and expanding transportation scale, the incidence of domestic spine surgery diseases has been increasing year by year, and has become a common and frequent disease that affects the lives of human beings. Skeletal muscle system has a complex anatomy and is an extremely important and complicated movement system in human body, and its surrounding is adjacent to important vascular and nerve tissues, which makes the surgery risk high. Domestic spine robot adopts the concept of precision surgery and technical means, combined with the research results of biomedical engineering, through accurate, safe and stable operation, to achieve precise surgical operation with less damage, solving the problems of low accuracy and high complication rate caused by limited vision and unstable movement of doctors in spine surgery, and improving the therapeutic effect of spine diseases, which has become one of the important directions of spine surgery development. It has become one of the important directions for the development of domestic spine surgery robots.

Prospects for the future development of spine robots.

In recent years, the domestic spine surgery robotics industry has developed rapidly, and a number of representative medical institutions, research institutes and manufacturing enterprises have emerged. To continue to play the great role of spine surgery robots in the field of medicine, spine robot systems should be continuously improved. At this stage, most domestic spine robots are non-automated or task automation systems, and in the future, they need to be deeply integrated with artificial intelligence technology, oriented to clinical needs, and continue to improve the degree of automation of spine robots by means of data accumulation and machine learning, so as to realize that the robots are from functionally assisted to relatively autonomous, and to further provide spine patients with highly efficient healthcare services.

Based on the real-time high-bandwidth and low-latency access characteristics of 5G technology, it expands the application scenarios of spine robots, promotes the rapid development of domestic spine telemedicine, and transforms the modern diagnosis and treatment concepts and means.In 2019, Perlove medical realized the remote control operation of robots through the 5G tele-surgery platform to form the iconic application of 5G+medical health care, which realizes the application and promotion of tele-robotic surgeries and promotes the application and promotion of high-end medical resources sinking and improving the quality of regional medical services.

In the future, general-purpose, miniaturized and modular robots may become the development trend of domestic spine robots. Dexterous robot configuration, integration of multi-mode image intelligent alignment and efficient planning, simple human-machine interaction, sensitive intelligent sensing, safe control strategy will become the main technical direction of spine surgery robot development.

However, the spine surgery robotics industry is still in the development stage, and some of the upstream core components of the industrial chain (robotic arms, navigation and positioning systems, sensors, etc.) are still dependent on imports, the basic research on image reconstruction, spatial alignment and precision control technologies is still insufficient, and there is a large gap of cross-disciplinary professionals. As a result, the level of R&D and clinical application of domestic spine surgery robots varies, and there are fewer spine robots with large-scale clinical application, and the relevant clinical studies are mostly case reports, and there is a lack of large-scale clinical control studies. In the future, it is necessary to further carry out research and development of spine robots and their key components, break through the core key technologies such as fast image alignment, high-precision positioning, intelligent human-machine interaction, and multi-degree-of-freedom precision control, and actively explore a new mode of medical-industrial crossover talent training to stimulate the innovation vitality of medical personnel, strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights, and enhance the research of clinical application to carry out large-scale controlled clinical experiments. We believe that in the near future, domestic spine surgery robots will stand in the forefront of the world.

Spine surgery robots, as new high-end medical devices, can help doctors complete surgeries more accurately and safely, and improve treatment results. The main advantage of Perlove Medical’s spine surgery robotic system is safety and precision, with clinical accuracy of sub-millimeter level (≤0.7mm).

However, while spine surgery robots are developing rapidly, we also need to think about the ethical issues brought by robotics. Especially when spine surgery robots are going to realize autonomous operation, the robots need to comply with the code of medical ethics even more. At the same time, we need to insist that spine surgery robotics positively help medicine, rather than pursuing the use of robots to replace doctors. Spine surgery robots can surpass some of the doctor’s surgical skills, but can never replace the doctor, the future will be a new era of deep cooperation between doctors and robots to solve patients’ diseases.
