ABB: presents new robot for hospital of the future
(CercleFinance.com) - ABB has presented the concept of a mobile laboratory robot for the hospital of the future.
On Wednesday the group opened its first Global Research Center for Health care research on the Texas Medical Center campus (TMC) in Houston, Texas.
ABB presented several technologies, including a YuMi mobile robot, designed to be used as a laboratory and laboratory assistant, while conducting logistics tasks in hospitals.
ABB said that, "At TMC Innovation Institute, ABB will develop robots that are able to carry out repetitive, delicate and mundane processes, leaving highly skilled medical and laboratory staff free to undertake more valuable roles and ultimately treat more patients. ABB analysis shows that repetitive tasks could be completed up to 50 per cent faster with automation, compared to current manual processes, with the added benefit that robots can work 24 hours a day."
