Scientists have developed an intelligent care robot that provides a range of remote monitoring capabilities, including early detection of COVID-19 symptoms, and alerts for health deterioration and falls.

The innovative solution has been developed by Vayyar Imaging (Tel Aviv, Israel), a developer of 4D imaging sensor technology, and Meditemi (Berlin, Germany), a provider of robotic healthcare solutions. The solution outfits Meditemi's health robots with Vayyar's 4D intelligent RF sensors to provide fast, robust and reliable screening and monitoring for early stage COVID-19 symptoms. When a person approaches the robot, standing within 1 meter of it, it performs a quick, touch-less scan to analyze their heart rate (BPM), respiratory rate (RPM), waveforms and temperature. The robot's dashboard then displays in real-time with very high levels of accuracy, key vital signs, and the COVID-19 infection risk level.

The care robots can provide fast, automatic screening in any public space, such as building entrances, factories, public transport, airports, trade shows and border crossings, with zero staff involvement or sanitation requirements. In addition, they can enable seniors to be monitored in their residences and alert caregivers of emergency situations or health deterioration. The intelligent robots can function in any environmental condition, unaffected by line-of-sight, lighting or weather conditions.

"Following successful collaborations with Israel's Ministries of Defense and Health, we are thrilled to be coupling our health sensor technology with Meditemi to provide solutions to bring people back to work and also help monitor our parents and grandparents at their homes," said Ofer Familier, General Manager of Vayyar Home.

"Meditemi robot together with Vayyar technology will help doctors and nurses in providing treatment and giving advice to patients without touching or getting close to the patient in order to reduce virus infection risks for medical personnel," said Rafael Aviram, President & CEO of Meditemi.
