• Impact and Rise of Service Robots in Healthcare

    Before we conclude the blog series on Robotics in Healthcare, we shall look at an essential type of robot taking the healthcare world by storm. Service robots relieve the burden on healthcare workers and paramedical staff by taking up routine logistical tasks. These robots can set up patient rooms, track supplies and file purchase orders, restock medical supply cabinets, and transport bed linens to and from laundry facilities. Delegating such tasks to robots helps the staff have more time for jobs that require human interaction and judgment. The rise of service robots The covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work with each other. Sanitation requirements and social…

  • Robotics in Healthcare: Applications (Part 2)

    In the previous blog, we witnessed how robotics has proven to be a boon for the healthcare industry. The emergence of robotics in healthcare has resulted in an enhanced healthcare system by making complex surgeries, patient screening, and disinfecting hospital areas much simpler. Continuing from the previous list of robotics applications in healthcare, we shall look at four more ways robotics shall impact our health from now on. Read on! Microbots for disease detection We have seen how giant metal robots help assist with surgeries, but the scope of robotics goes way beyond that. Microbots, small-sized robots, have a mighty significance in the healthcare industry. They enable doctors to perform…

  • Robotics in Healthcare: Applications (Part 1)

    The series starting with this blog was chosen by you – our readers and followers. Thus, we are extra excited about sharing interesting information through the upcoming blogs. We shall be talking about the confluence of 2 industries that are heavily trending at the moment. Robotics and healthcare! Hope you find the series engaging. The stress on greater precision in surgeries, better management of patients and hospitals, and reducing human errors in treatment keeps pushing the healthcare industry to adopt newer technologies. One such technology is robotics. The use of robotics in healthcare can be traced back to the 1980s when used for precise positioning of the cannula for brain…

  • RAGHAV – The Corona Warrior

    The Coronavirus pandemic is affecting every industry in some way or the other. But the most affected of them all is the Healthcare Industry. Doctors, nurses, helpers are constantly exposed to infected patients and face high risk during the treatments. As of April 2020, around 45+ hospitals were sealed and 2000+ healthcare workers were quarantined. This number is on the rise and with every passing day more and more healthcare workers are getting infected with COVID-19. This made us think, we had always said that our mobile robots can help in medical sector and what better time than this? At Rucha Yantra, we focus on designing user-friendly minimalistic robots which…

  • AGVs in Healthcare Industry

    Yesterday, one of our engineers came across a short video clip while scrolling through the news. It was that of a robot serving food to the corona virus affected patients in China. He immediately showed this to a few of us colleagues. Such a great concept, such a noble cause! Who would have thought that in this dreadful spell of corona virus scare, robots can come handy this way? The wheels in our heads started spinning. We had always said that AGVs can help in medical sector. In fact, they are being used in hospitals across various countries since as early as 1980s. In today‚Äôs topic AGVs in Healthcare, let…
