It might seem like science fiction in comparison to other medical advancements made over the years, but medical robots are now a reality and can actually give routine check-ups to hospital patients with the help of embedded motherboards and medical-grade touch panel PCs. These machines can move freely among patients and hospital staff and go from room to room – checking on patients and providing quick medical assistance.
Created by iRobot Corp and InTouch Health and approved by the FDA, these machines are remote-presence robots that utilize a two-way video screen and medical monitoring equipment when checking on patients – bringing a new level of convenience to the medical industry. These robots are controlled can be controlled by Axiomtek’s advanced embedded motherboards (3.5-inch, Mini-ITX and Nano-ITX form factor) with high performance CPUs to process information to make a preliminary diagnosis to the patient for fast medical consultation. Axiomtek’s Medical touch panel PC products can also be integrated into the robot’s design, in order to provide human machine interface control of the robot, display treatment options and even provide video feed contact with real medical professionals. The Axiomtek MPC product line also features anti-microbial housing, which is designed to prevent bacterial invasions that are commonly found in hospitals. This means an easier treatment process for hospitals with long patient lines as well as an alternative use for directly dealing with patients that have dangerous communicable diseases.
Axiomtek also provides design assistance services to customers looking for complete customization to fit their medical industry project needs. Our design engineering services team members are a group of true experts with years of experience assisting our clients in every facet of their product/network design, development and deployment processes. They can take all your headaches away or work as a part of your existing team to help ease the burden of the design and development processes.
