Recently, the COVID-19 virus vaccine has been released, but the outbreak has not yet been resolved. Even with a high level of protection, losses are still going on everywhere. Healthcare professionals have to work at risk and under pressure. This tension is forcing the world to develop technologies to cope with the situation. Among the cutting-edge medical technologies, robotics is one of the keys to modern healthcare operations. At the recently ended innovation fair in UK, IBIX 2020, the best innovation award was given to a medical service robot from Thailand. The robot was developed through a collaboration between Thailand’s leading robotics firm, TKK Corporation, Chulabhorn International College of Medicine at Thammasat University, and Innovation Center for Robotics and Automations Systems at Panyapiwat Institute of Management.
Thailand: an innovative robot to fight against Covid-19
This robot facilitates healthcare staff to deliver medical supplies, clothes, and foods to patients. The doctor can check the patient’s well-being through the teleconference system. This reduces the possibility of exposure to COVID and other infectious diseases. The robot is also useful for cancer care, where personnel can be exposed to radiation from treatment. The robot will be in service at EEC’s Medical Center located near Pattaya, a popular beach city in the east of Thailand.
