The Irish government is poised to release a report on the future of robotics in the country by the end of the year, with the goal of encouraging a move towards a robot-driven medical system.
Robots are being used to operate medical devices in hospitals and on a large scale, but experts say it is not clear how these systems will work in the long term, especially when it comes to patient care.
Robotics systems have been around for decades, but in the past few years the technology has moved to the medical setting.
A number of companies are working to bring the technology to the field, and some have already developed systems for medical use.
The technology is expected to be used for many things in the coming years, from the delivery of medicine to the treatment of patients.
Dr John Murphy, a researcher at the University of Dublin, told The Irish Sun the technology is already being used in hospitals to help with the delivery and delivery of vaccines, but that there are some issues that need to be worked out.
Robot systems have the potential to reduce the amount of time it takes for a medical intervention to be delivered, allowing for quicker treatment of illnesses and more timely results, he said.
Robotic systems also have the ability to provide greater precision of care by providing a more accurate and up-to-date picture of what the patient is experiencing, he added.
There are currently no robots in the Irish medical system that could help deliver a treatment to a patient, he explained.
However, there are a number of different ways of delivering a patient in a hospital setting, he told The Sun.
The main way that these systems are used is through remote intervention.
This is when the patient needs to be carried to the bedside, to be fitted with a device or device-based treatment.
The robot could then deliver the treatment, with or without a patient being in the room with them, he claimed.
The system could also be used in the delivery area, to help the patient if they are sick.
There is also the possibility of robots carrying equipment to the hospital to assist in the diagnosis of a patient.
Dr Murphy said he would like to see a system that uses the technology in the context of a large-scale, collaborative clinical trial.
In order to do this, the patient and the robotic system would have to be in a large room with other patients and medical staff, he suggested.
The development of such a system would require a lot of testing, but the technology would be very accessible to the public, he continued.
The study, due to be released in mid-2019, will be followed by a feasibility study and a cost assessment.
Dr Clare O’Reilly, chief executive of the National Automation Association, told the newspaper that there was no immediate indication of how the technology will be used, but it is expected that it would be used to help address issues such as patient-care quality, as well as providing a high level of comfort for the patients.
She said it was too early to say how the system would be employed in practice.
“The technology will provide a great deal of benefits to the patient, and the public.
We would be keen to see what the technology could do in the field and if the technology can be used,” she said.
