Omnicell Stock: Investing in Automated Pharmacy Tech

Those of a certain age may remember actor Matt Dillon’s greatest performance of his career as a drug addict who, with his drug-addled gang, busted into pharmacies to get a fix and make some cash. “Drugstore Cowboy” came out in 1989, but what the medical industry euphemistically calls “medication loss due to drug diversion” is […]

What’s the Best Robot Stock to Invest In?

Those with very little capital to invest often look for ways to increase it exponentially while taking on loads of risk in the process. We call this “finding the next Tesla.” Usually, this starts with a theme that’s easy to understand and compelling. Robots are a great example. Then it’s off to ask the Ministry […]

Intuitive Surgical Stock Leads Robot-Assisted Surgery

A couple of years ago, we pulled back the curtain on how thematic exchange traded funds (ETFs) work. The article came out around the time we were trying to find the best robotics ETF to invest in. This also coincided with the initial release of the Nanalyze Disruptive Tech Portfolio, which has since evolved as […]

Memic Innovative Stock: Robotic Surgery for Gynecology

Last month, we profiled an interesting surgical robotics company for urology called PROCEPT BioRobotics (PRCT) shortly before it went public a couple of weeks ago. PROCEPT has developed the first and only image-guided, heat-free robotic platform for treating a type of prostate condition that affects the urinary tract. The company has been generating meaningful revenues […]

PROCEPT BioRobotics Stock: Surgical Robots For Urology

Breaking news this week. Elizabeth Holmes of Theranos is formulating her “bad man made me do it” defense, and her attorneys are considering whether or not she should take the stand. Having her stare at the jury with those Manson lamps while articulating, in that truck-driver voice, why her behavior wasn’t totally psychopathic makes about […]

Vicarious Surgical Stock – Surgical Robots With VR

“Vicarious Surgical develops virtual reality (VR) software for minimally invasive surgery procedures.” That’s what Crunchbase says today, and that’s what we thought they were doing when we first wrote about the company back in 2017 in a piece titled 15 Virtual Reality Startups in Healthcare. At the time, we didn’t think VR surgeries made much […]

Bionaut Sends Robots into the Human Body to Treat Disease

It may sound like science fiction, but there was a time when people were optimistic about the future. Perhaps no other decade embodies that optimism than the 1960s, though maybe it was all of the psychedelic drugs. Still, we made it to the moon, and sci-fi shows like “Star Trek” offered an inspiring vision of […]

Robocath Commercializes Robotic Heart Surgery System

We recently profiled an AI healthcare startup called AliveCor, which has developed machine learning algorithms that turn smartphones into clinical-grade electrocardiogram (ECG) recorders using only a small handheld device. It fit snugly into our ongoing coverage of remote patient monitoring in the Age of Rona. We’ve also written quite a bit about the increasing role […]

A Dental Robot That Helps With Dental Surgeries

In Body Rituals of the Nacirema, anthropologist Horace Miner describes a North American group of people with some strange rituals. One involves a “holy mouth man” who uses a variety of augers, awls, and prods as objects in the exorcism of the evils of the mouth. It’s a process that involves almost unbelievable ritual torture […]

6 Robotic Surgery Stocks for Retail Investors

Earlier this year, we wrote about the increasingly important role of healthcare robotics in smart hospital settings to help cut down on infections, as well as other nasty viruses and bacteria. Service robots can help deliver medications or sanitize hospital rooms, with the goal to reduce contact between human petri dishes in critical care conditions […]
