The Increasing demand for affordable and efficient healthcare.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UV-C, commonly referred to wavelengths between 200 – 280 nm) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
What is UV-C disinfection?
UV-C disinfection utilises UV-C light at wave lengths of 200 to 300 nm to destroy the DNA structure of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi in seconds, leaving the microorganisms inactive and unable to spread, preventing further infection. This form of disinfection has a sufficiently high irradiance ensuring the UV-C disinfection is reliable and environmentally friendly.
Why use a UV-C robot?
There are several options available for facilities and businesses when it comes to UV-C disinfection, but shadowing must be considered. UV-C light can only disinfect surfaces that it can reach which can create problems areas that are shadowed. UV-C Robots is an innovative technology to solve this issue. By combining UV-C disinfection technology with an autonomous robot, it becomes a reliable solution that significantly reduces the likelihood of shadowing.
How does UV-C robots it work?
Our Robots have industry-leading navigation technology, high-precision positioning, memory-based mapping, recording personnel routes, autonomous movement, smart obstacle avoidance, and long-term stable operation in a responsible environment. Our robots will be able to function fully autonomously and will make its way around corridors and rooms, disinfecting configured areas. UV-C light is harmful to humans so the benefit of our robots technology is that it doesn’t need manually moving and works autonomously or off a tablet device. As soon as it detects a human 3 meters away, it stops the radiation.
Modern hospitals are under increasing pressure. They operate around the clock and both the quality and cost of healthcare are constantly scrutinized.
Behind the Scenes
Behind the scenes, logistics play a vital role in smooth and efficient operation, and the more these processes are optimised, the more time healthcare staff can spend with patients. By using mobile robots to automate a lot of the logistical tasks, it is possible to free up resources to focus on increasing the quality of care for patients.
24 / 7
Modern hospitals operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and logistic processes are increasingly becoming automated. This is in response to changes in lifestyles and demographics which are putting pressure on healthcare facilities as never before. Improving the quality of – and access to – healthcare, while controlling costs as populations age and grow is a major challenge for the healthcare sector.
Automation of internal hospital logistics is a way for hospitals to reduce costs and spend less time on non-care related tasks. Hospitals should be seen as an eco-system where food is brought in and waste thrown out, while beds, medical instruments and thousands of other things are constantly moved around. The more this is automated, the more time healthcare staff can spend with patients.
Relying on advanced AI and manufacturing technology, deep technical advances have been built in the fields of positioning and navigation, motion control, multi-machine scheduling, perception and obstacle avoidance.
Automated Guided Vehicles can help the healthcare logistics processes tremendously more effective. They can transport goods such as linen, food, medicine and empty beds and deliver them to each department as they need them.
