Abstract

This paper provides an overview of robotics in medical science. After discussing the basic medical robot’s idea, the future of medical robotics and the types of medical application are also discussed. One of the ambitions of this work is to deeply discuss the challenges and difficulties of medical robots. This paper presents year-wise discussion of medical robots which provides a throughout idea about what is happening in medical robots from the last 30 years to the next 30 years.
