美国食品和药物管理局批准首个医用机器人用于医院

健康 89xy 1周前 (11-20) 7次浏览

A robot that allows patients to communicate with doctors via a telemedicine system that can move around on its own has just received 510(k) clearance by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

The robot, called RP-VITA
, was created by InTouch Health and iRobot and allows doctors from anywhere in the world to communicate with patients at their hospital bedside via a telemedicine solution through an iPad interface.

According to iRobot and InTouch Health, RP-VITA combines the latest from iRobot in autonomous navigation and mobility technology with state-of-the-art telemedicine, and InTouch Health developed telemedicine and electronic health record integration.

RP-VITA makes it possible for doctors to have “doctor-to-patient consults, ensuring that the physician is in the right place at the right time and has access to the necessary clinical information to take immediate action.”

The robot is used in ways that scientists have never before seen. In order to not get in the way of other people or objects, it outlines its own environment and utilizes a range of advanced sensors to autonomously move about a crowded space.

Irrespective of a doctor’s location, using an intuitive iPad® interface allows them to visit patients and communicate with their co-workers with a single click.

A clearance from the FDA means that RP-VITA can be used for active patient monitoring in pre-operative, peri-operative, and post-surgical settings, such as prenatal, neurological, psychological, and critical care evaluations and examinations
.

InTouch Health is selling RP-VITA into the healthcare market as its new top-of-the-line remote presence device.

iRobot will keep searching for opportunities in neighboring markets for robots such as RP-VITA and the iRobot Ava™ mobile robotics platform.

Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot, explained:

“美国食品和药物管理局批准了一种机器人,它可以在快节奏、混乱和要求苛刻的医院环境中安全、独立地移动,这是机器人和医疗保健行业的一个重要技术里程碑。很少有环境像繁忙的重症监护室或急诊科那样难以控制。跨过这一技术门槛后,自动导航机器人在其他市场和新应用中的潜力几乎是无限的。”

Yulun Wang, chairman and CEO of InTouch Health concluded:

“远程呈现解决方案已经在医疗领域证明了自己的价值。RP-VITA经过了严格的测试,我们相信机器人的易用性和独特的功能将使新的临床应用和用途成为可能。”
