Worldwide snake robot markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the next
generation units provide an access and movement mechanism that is unique and useful.

Confined spaces exist. A confined space exists because of a lack of ability to take
apart or dismantle components. Confined spaces exist in nuclear reactors, aircraft, the
human body, industrial processing plant, underwater environments, ship-building, space.
Buildings, roads, pipelines and other man-made spaces all have confined spaces.

The world is full of awkward confined spaces. Snake-arm robots
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nz6hz7/snake_robots ] are self-contained
portable devices and extensions to existing systems. These products build on software and
hardware technology. Snake robots used for small space access, inside airplane wing
access, first responder tasks, and surgery: They are used for going where nothing else can
go. Snake robots provide systems that significantly improve traditional open surgery by
consolidating the number of minimally invasive access ports to one and eliminating open
surgery.

The automated process revolution in surgery, first responder help, and communications
is being implemented via robots. Robots are automating systems, providing significant
improvement in the accuracy of surgery and penetration of spaces that were previously
impenetrable.

According to the lead author of the study, A confined space needs snake shapes to
achieve access. Confined spaces exist by design (aircraft engine), by failure (collapsed
building) or naturally (human body). Existing open surgery can be replaced in large part
by robotic and minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Minimally invasive surgery MIS, drug
therapies, radiation treatment, and emerging interventional surgical approaches complement
robotic surgery techniques as a replacement for or complement to open surgery. The snake
robots reduce the number of ports needed to gain access and repair the heart.

During a robot assisted surgical procedure, the patient-side cart is positioned next
to the operating table with the electromechanical arms arranged to provide access to the
initial ports selected by the surgeon. Metal tubes attached to the arms are inserted
through the ports, and the cutting and visualization instruments are introduced through
the tubes into the patient’s body. The surgeon performs the procedure while sitting at a
console, manipulating the instrument controls and viewing the operation through a vision
system. When a surgeon needs to change an instrument the instrument is withdrawn from the
surgical field using the controls at the console. This is done many times during an
operation.

The companies that get an early foothold in the market have significant strategic
advantage. The robotic snake
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nz6hz7/snake_robots ] leverages a new technique
for robotic movement that benefits users by providing efficient access to difficult
spaces. This factor is driving demand for snake robot systems. Since robotics provide a
precise, repeatable and controlled ability to perform procedures in tight spaces, they are
increasingly in demand.
