China Medical Robotics Industry Report 2016-2020: As of the End of December 2015, More than 40 Chinese Hospitals had Installed over 50 Surgical Robots for Fulfilling 11,445 Cases of Surgery in 2015 - Research and Markets
Medical robotics can be used in surgery, rescue, transport, care, rehabilitation, dispensing and so on for the sick and wounded. Especially, surgical, rehabilitation and dispensing robots are the R & D priorities for China.
The overall development of Chinese medical robotics, in particular surgical robots, is relatively backward. In recent years, China has been dependent on Da Vinci products imported from the United States-based Intuitive Surgical. As of the end of December 2015, more than 40 Chinese hospitals had installed over 50 surgical robots for fulfilling 11,445 cases of surgery in 2015 and 22,917 cases over the years cumulatively.
According to diseases, Da Vinci surgical system finds main application in urology and general surgical disciplines (hepatobiliary, pancreatic, gastrointestinal, colorectal and thyroid surgery, etc.) in China, and have implemented 9,313 and 7,220 cases so far respectively, occupying 40.6% and 31.5% of the total separately.
However, Chinese surgical robots have also made some progress with the support of the national policies and subsidies.
China Medical Robotics Industry Report 2016-2020 highlights the following:
