From surgical robots, present in countless operating rooms around the world, to nanorobots that perform biopsies or administer drugs to specific organs, medical robotics is advancing at breakneck pace. Technologies such as miniaturisation, artificial intelligence and 5G are now driving the automaton revolution in the field of health care and telemedicine.
