This report provides qualitative assessment of medical robots (surgical/rehabilitation/non-invasive radiosurgery/hospital & pharmacy) in terms of prices of different types of robots, price variation by application & geography, reimbursements of medical robots, buying cycle, financing options available to the end-users to access the technology, price wars among market players, marketing & promotional strategies focused by the vendors, and cost-benefit assessment based on research studies and expert opinions.

The application and technology form the two important components that guide the final pricing of a medical robot.

For instance, the surgical robots for laparoscopic applications are most expensive as compared to surgical robots for other applications. In addition, technological variation further creates price variation, an example for which is the named Zeno R25 (rehabilitation robot by RoboKind) which is expected to be launched in retail space at a price tag of USD 2,700.

To cut the cost in R25, the manufacturers reduced the number of motors below the waist from 12 to three while still allowing the robot to walk and turn.

Medical Robotics being a highly sophisticated technology showcases slow adoption due to economic hurdles. However, medical robots have become an extremely popular topic over the last few years.

Thus, the cost-benefit assessment has taken center stage in the industry and is dominating almost every conversation and headlining several conferences in the field of robotics. The report has provided cost-benefit assessment covering cost benefit studies and industry opinion.

The section provides a guideline to the stakeholders in understanding the investment structure and the cost-savings achieved through the use of each type of robot. To increase the access to this expensive technology, manufacturers have been offering varied financing options to the healthcare providers.

Some of the options include leasing, pay-per-use, bundled payments, rental agreements, and expanded payment terms, among others.
