Robotics has been developing rapidly in recent years, as has the hospital sector. Since 1984, Gibotech has created automation solutions using the latest robotics, and our portfolio also includes several different hospital robots that can perform a number of important functions in the healthcare sector. Each hospital robot is built in modules, which provides a unique opportunity to put together a solution that is adapted to the customer’s specific needs.
In our portfolio of innovative hospital robots you can find an automated sterile center that can be implemented in the sterile workflow of hospitals. A Central Sterile Supply Department, CSSD, can be established in brand new buildings, just as it can be adapted to the requirements of already existing buildings, and you therefore get a highly flexible hospital robot, which for example can also be placed in the basement or other less favorable working environments. A CSSD can help automate the manual processes and tasks associated with receiving and handling goods. A CSSD can also be responsible for sterilising surgical instruments, thus helping to ensure a high standard when it comes to infection hygiene in the hospital.
Hospital robots with a wide range of functions
At Gibotech, we have developed and produced several different hospital robots, each of which has its unique functions. This provides an opportunity to meet the challenges that may arise in the individual hospital or in the health service. Among other things, we have mobile robots that can move around freely and can thus relieve the burden of transporting operating equipment manually. Our mobile robots are small and therefore do not take up much space, and they benefit the employees as they release working hours for other tasks for the employees at the hospital. Several of Gibotech’s mobile hospital robots use lasers and other censors to identify obstacles, as well as an emergency stop that can prevent accidents, so safety is top notch. The mobile hospital robots can also be used in the receipt of goods as well as assisting in product handling. This type of hospital robot can help lower the cost of both pay and operation, and a hospital robot is therefore an investment that will quickly be visible on the bottom line.
At Gibotech, we have also developed a hospital robot that can increase the efficiency of blood test handling. The hospital robot is responsible for recognizing and recording the samples, which are automatically passed on to the right laboratories. This automated handling helps to minimize trivial and monotonous work for employees, which is where there is the greatest risk of human error and work injuries. By setting a hospital robot to handle blood test handling, more samples can be processed than is the case with manual handling, and therefore it ensures a continuous flow of samples, which provides short and stable response times.
Among other things, we have developed GiboSort, which is a very special hospital robot that can handle blood test handling from the general practitioners and all the way to the hospitals’ laboratories. With this type of hospital robot, the blood samples are transported in specially designed transport boxes from the GPs to the hospital, where a sorting robot empties the boxes and sorts the samples, where they are mixed with the hospital’s own samples. This hospital robot can prioritize the box with urgent tests, just as it can put unidentifiable samples in a box for them, where they will be handled manually. GiboSort was first installed at Nordsjællands Hospital, Hillerød in 2015 with great success, and has since been introduces at other hospitals.
The reduction of manual processes minimizes the risk of human errors.
Implementing robotics technology provides a higher efficiency with the same amount of employees.
Automation reduces monotonous and repeating tasks and improves employees’ ergonomic conditions.
Take advantage of modern technology with a hospital robot
Automation has many advantages in the healthcare sector as well as in the individual company. Thus, we can also be responsible for the development and programming of various industrial robots, which can free up resources in the company by making full use of the production facilities. Since 1984, we have delivered solutions to many different customers in very different industries. We therefore also have in-depth experience in creating an automation solution that fits perfectly in the company’s production. We also make sure to create customer-specific surfaces that make it easy for the employees in the company to make use of the system. At Gibotech, we can also create a CNC machine and solution that increases productivity and thus ensures shorter delivery times, and frees up time for employees to perform other and more demanding tasks.
If you choose Gibotech to handle your hospital robot or other robotic solutions, we are responsible for both construction and programming. The automation solution will be developed based on the customer’s needs and with our expertise as a guarantee that it meets the applicable legal requirements. If the automation solution is part of our customers’ production, we are able to deliver spare parts, just as we can also offer to perform robot service on them. If you want to know more about the many benefits of hospital robots or our other automation solutions, please feel free to contact us.
Our high-tech automation solutions for hospitals and the health sector are built-in modules. This provides us with the best starting point and we are always able to construct and deliver a solution that suits the needs of our customers’ perfectly.
