GE developing robotic system for hospitals

GE developing robotic system for hospitals | Longevity science | Scoop.it

Presently, when an operation is going to be performed at a hospital, people first locate all the instruments that the surgeon will require, inspect them, arrange them on a tray, sterilize them, and then deliver them to the operating room. According to General Electric’s GE Global Research division, however, robots could do all of those things better. To that end, the group has recently partnered with GE Healthcare and the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, in a US$2.5 million two-year project to develop just such robots.

iRobot introduces telepresence doctor

iRobot introduces telepresence doctor | Longevity science | Scoop.it

In a medical emergency, seconds count. But if the doctor needed is in another part of the hospital or even another part of town, then those seconds can stretch dangerously. If only the doctor could be in two places at once, then countless lives could be saved.

 

This is one of the most promising applications in the emerging field of telepresence robotics and RP-VITA (Remote Presence Virtual + Independent Telemedicine Assistant)

Meet ROBOT-Rx, The Robot Pharmacist Doling Out 350 Million Doses Per Year | Singularity Hub

Meet ROBOT-Rx, The Robot Pharmacist Doling Out 350 Million Doses Per Year | Singularity Hub | Longevity science | Scoop.it

You probably didn't know it, but robots already work in pharmacies. Many hospitals have been using ROBOT-Rx to dispense medication doses.

 

With near-perfect accuracy, this robo-pharmacist stores, counts, dispenses, and keeps records. All the humans have to do is prescribe the medication.
