Medical Robotics

Brabant is home to virtually all levels of the robotics markets thanks to its advanced high-tech ecosystem and specialist technical universities. Brabant excels in robotics, where artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced engineering meet to produce breakthrough technologies. Adding to this are the connections with hospitals and medical facilities within Brabant that collaborate on such projects.

Inside Brabant’s Value Chain for Medical Robotics

For decades, technologies that require pinpoint accuracy and high complexity have been built in the province. In Brabant, the medical sector is closely aligned with the high-tech industries, notably in the work of Philips Healthcare and also evident in the series of innovations in X-ray machines, starting as far back as 1927 with the world’s first portable X-ray machine.

Brabant is home to numerous robotics suppliers and programmers, meaning that specialist components are easy to obtain and do not always have to be shipped from the other side of the world. In many instances, these advanced components can be manufactured within the province.
