Healthcare operator and nurses are in high demands, and there is shortage everywhere. This can lead to long queue and waiting time to give assistance. Diligent Robotics created Moxi Healthcare Assistant
to reduce the load on the operators.
Moxi is a robot that aim to automate some task of human operator like fetch particular equipment, delivery supply or food, store equipment, delivery of samples to analysis department. The robot is connected into the hospital’s electronic health record system and receive tasks on changes of patients information.
For instance, if a patient has been discharged and their room is marked clean in the health record, Moxi will get a command to take and prepare a set of fresh supplies for a new patient to the room so that it’s all ready to go for the next person.
Patients ended up being so infatuated with Moxi that they would ask for selfies with the robot; one child even sent Diligent Robotics a letter asking where Moxi lived.
The nurse told the Diligent team that she just didn’t have to think about the task anymore—which means that she could spend more time with patients
The robot is equipped with vision sensors, it has speakers, a robotic arms and extensible body.
