VTV.vn - The use of robots in Vietnam is becoming more popular as the 4th industrial revolution churns along, and the country's medical field is expected to benefit from this.

Last year, there were a total of 17 surgical robots in South East Asia, while in Asia, there were 502 and 2563 in the US. In Vietnam, there are 3 medical robots in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Even though robots are precise and useful, they cost a lot of money to operate, compared to other types of medical equipment. In order to make this technology more accessible, solutions such as social insurance need to be considered.
