The global soft tissue repair market is growing rapidly. The increasing incidence of soft tissue
injuries in the aging population is driving the market growth. Soft tissue injuries are those
injuries which occur in the case of overuse of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. For instance,
excessive running may risk in musculoskeletal injuries such as calf strain. Some of the common
soft tissue injuries include ankle sprain, back strain, calf strain, golfers, tennis elbow, bruising,
tendinitis, and hamstring strain.

Robots to Complement Human Surgeons
Researchers have taken robotics to a new level in the operating theater. They have used robots
perform surgery on soft tissue in live pigs and determined that they perform surgery more
effectively than human surgeons. The team at the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical
Innovation and Children's National Health System in 2016, demonstrated how Smart Tissue
Autonomous Robot (STAR) performed surgeries on soft tissues better than human surgeons.
STAR is a robotic technology that eliminates the surgeon's hands from the procedure
effectively. In tests on dead and live tissue, the STAR system performed better than other
methods on a number of critical measures. These measures included consistency of suture
spacing and the amount of pressure that the joined tissue can withstand before occurring of
the leakage - an area with the significant potential complication in anastomosis.
FDA Clearance for Novel Knee System for Robot-Assisted Surgeries
In January 2019, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. received the FDA 510(k) clearance for its ROSA
Knee System for robotic-assisted total knee replacement surgeries. ROSA Knee improves bone
cut accuracy and range of motion gap analysis for pote
