ODENSE, DENMARK – 2 FEBRUARY 2017 Multi-Tower Robot, the new robotic healthcare solution from Blue Ocean Robotics, is developed as a contribution to improving the quality level, resource utilization and general welfare development of the Danish healthcare system. Furthermore, the robot is being developed to enable a sustainable fulfillment of the eighth national targets issued by the government, KL and Danish Regions in 2016. The national targets has been set as a foundation in improving quality levels of the Danish healthcare system with a strong focus on individual patient benefits.
The Multi-Tower Robot is a mobile, fleksibel og modular patient-lifting robot intended to be used primarily in hospital patient rooms and in correlated situations where patient-moving is required. The versatile design and flexibility of the Multi-Tower Robot enables furthermore utilization in other hospital environments and user scenarios, like lavatory visits and showering, in outpatient clinics, in bed transports etc. It is the intention that the robot solution also can be utilized in the primary health care and in patients own home.
- I see great potential in equipping bed- and treatment areas with patient-lifting robots like this. This will enable better service for our patients and a safer working environment for our employees, says Helle Gaub, Project Director, Projekt Universitetshospital Køge.
- The hospitals are experiencing an increased number of patient treatments and a focus on financial efficiency improvements throughout the healthcare sector. Treatments are carried out by the hospital personnel every day and they are doing a great job but it requires a high level of both physical and mental strength. Therefore it is extremely important that we are in close dialogue and in collaboration with the operational personnel in developing technological applications, that can assist both personnel in their daily tasks and help patients quickly regain strength. Without the opportunity of close collaboration, which is enabled in Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), it is not possible to develop usable and useful technology like this. It furthermore adds to a better utilization of the resources available in the healthcare sector, says Anja Hald, Senior Business Developer at Blue Ocean Robotics.
