Take heart with medical robots.

Medically speaking, robots have taken an interesting turn in the turbulent marketplace of the early 2000’s.

Some that are having success include Cardiorrobotics Inc. and Corindus Inc. Both are preparing to enter the market with robots for surgical applications. Where is the future of robots? See how the East Coast already has a claim in the burgeoning frontier of surgical robots when you go to “Cardiorobotics collects first funding” at Mass High Tech: The Journal of New England Technology (www.masshightech.com/).

    Even when things are bad they seem to be good for surgical robots. Mako Surgical Corp. announced shrinking losses (http://www.bizjournals.com/southflorida/stories/2009/08/03/daily44.html) and Hansen Medical thinks it can weather the storm (http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2009/08/04/ap6740473.html).
