TC on Medical Robotics: motivations


Growing interest for biomedical
applications of robotics (research,
industry, health care system)


need for focused research on critical
problems (design, technology, safety,
regulation, ...)


need for interdisciplinary approach
(technical, medical, industrial,
economic, social, ethical, cultural)
