The understanding of medical-surgical products associated with robotics and technologies, but in wrong understanding, many people think that robotics and technology in surgical instruments mean all work during surgeries are done by the robots which not the right thought, actually instrumental robotics and technologies mean the equipment are well data analyzer and can give good support to doctors and surgeons to do the perfect operation in a limited time period whereas these technologies and robotics are still not enough mature to self-surgeries and operation without human interference that’s why technologies still depend on humans.
1. Client interaction
Many surgical equipment manufacturers are willing to invite clients to onboard for the development of more technologies and robotics in the equipment but when it’s on the charge that deals face many issues which pushing innovation at back or with extremely less pace, whereas this issue normally unrecognized by the health care sector but at actual it has a big impact on the overall sector if these issues revolved and taken action against it they can give high impact on the medical-industrial revolution which can bring new devices to market and also highly beneficial for the patients as well.
2. No Access during operations and surgeries
It is mandatory for every technological upgrade to must have good knowledge about requirements and place of usage, this phenomenon is same for the manufacturers of the surgical products technological upgrade to uncover the key potential areas, for a surgical upgrade in technology must need live coverage of operation theatre and surgeries because research and development only can possible when having actual and accurate data and area for which can take corrective actions so for that many of the hospitals and clinics not allow very easily but at some level, special thanks to some hospitals and some patients who when don’t know some people watching them without permission to make better future.
3. Change in Cost Of Surgical Products
Actually in the market when surgical products manufacturers introduce a product with technological upgrade market warmly welcome that and it automatically pushes the market towards fast adaptation because if it has more benefits and unique functions it is best for health sectors and hospitals but the only thing is to let all should need to know what technology it has and where it will use and how its work for the health care sector, as it takes confidence from the market the adaptation reached its peak, but this factor also face cost issue because new devices always have higher prices than previous.
4. Health sector leaders and surgeons
It is very difficult to study things completely during surgeries and operations here need to more time from the surgeons to discuss the issues and technology to be adopted in the near future, as many of the surgeons are too busy and need to visit several time to their offices for only a few minutes discussion due to this kind of limitations development are very slow, at another hand where development extended toward a good point another issue integrated with it to discuss market buying leaders for adaptation and market need to identify production capacity and its related cost this can help to surgical equipment manufacturers to introduce a sampling of technology to the market but as it does not has big confidence from the market it is also a big challenge slow pace of technology.
5. Enhancement in Existing technologies
As surgical products manufacturers are parallel more concerned about technological upgrade with a new one at the same time they are willing to upgrade existing technology, for example, its processing speed, size, making it portable or easy to use in multiple areas but that all things have also limitation some time good things do not perform good or up to the standard as nowadays all health care sectors are more conscious about the complete test of every coming device at the real ground before bulk buying, new technology always not mean it is suitable and can run in the long run as well, for example, one device becomes portable or high in speed but at actual this advancement is not adding anything extra in real use so this need to be understood.
6. Regulatory Approvals Issue
As this is a big burden on the surgical equipment manufacturers to get approval from the regulatory bodies for every new innovation to market or any new technological upgrade an existing product to the market, as these regulatory mostly take too much time and very hard procedures to clear any product for the market these matters putting back technological experts and because of that health care sector facing huge limitation in development and its implementations, at another hand, new technology news boosts up close technologies with in the market which has nearly same or nearby functions which allow to regulatory bodies to pass the new technology because some near technologies have a good outcome for both hospitals and patients as well.
7. Fixed Cost Challenges
As many health care sectors associated with many of penalizations and government sectors and on the basis of it they already fixed amount for the different treatments and its related tests based on available devices and its technologies, whenever new devices or upgradations in existing device take place from surgical equipment manufacturers, it becomes a big issue for the hospitals and clinics as the cost of new technology and devices are higher than the previous one in term of price and usage of other related with them, so adaptation of new technological devices or upgraded devices means revision and negotiation with all associated again which is mostly very hard and time is taken and challenging for the hospitals and clinics.
We can say that whatever the challenges are coming must need to understand health care sector directly associated with the lives of human which mean no one willing to compromise on lives, so as far as many hurdles are concern in the adaptation and up-gradation cycle it needs to be addressed by mutual understanding within all health sector-related sector from surgical Surgical products manufacturers to end consumer because it is the need of time to save more lives.
