The healthcare industry is under constant financial pressure to find new solutions that can improve working environment and the quality of patient care. That is why Aethon in a RoBi-X partnership with Blue Ocean Robotics introduced the autonomous delivery robot, TUG, to the European healthcare industry. The robot transports scheduled and on-demand hospital deliveries saving the staff’s time that they can now devote to their patients.
Each year approximately 50,000 Danes catch an infection during hospitalization and an estimated 3,000 people die from infection related complications. For Denmark that results in USD 162 million preventable annual expenses. The numbers are much higher for USA – USD 30 billion and USD 600 million for Australia. With variable sources of infections there is a great need for effective disinfection processes.
New hospitals and healthcare facilities in Denmark are being rebuilt and modernized during the coming years.

The national targets have been set as a foundation in improving quality levels of the Danish healthcare system with a strong focus on individual patient benefits, flexibility, patient safety and a better utilization of facilities.
A fast-changing global world and international projects force companies around the world to create effective models of global cooperation. That is a big challenge that often requires frequent travels and generates additional costs. But what if it would be possible to be in two places at the same time? Blue Ocean Robotics brings such possibility to the market through a RoBi-X Partnership with Suitable Technologies. The partnership has introduced the Beam Telepresence Robot to the global market, facilitating virtual presence for people who cannot physically be at a particular place.
