HCARD, a robotic device, will help frontline healthcare workers in maintaining physical distancing from those infected with the coronavirus. The Hospital Care Assistive Robotic Device is developed by a Durgapur-based CSIR lab, Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute.

Hospitals world over are using robots to assist frontline workers in taking care of COVID-19 patients. The phenomenon is catching up in India too mainly because healthcare workers at hospitals are risking coronavirus infection while taking care of those infected by it.

HCARD, to help them treat the patients while maintaining physical distancing norms

Durgapur-based CSIR lab, Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute has created a robotic device called HCARD or Hospital Care Assistive Robotic Device to help frontline healthcare workers in maintaining physical distance from those infected by coronavirus.
The device is equipped with various state-of-the-art technologies and works both in automatic as well as manual modes of navigation. This robot can be controlled and monitored by a nursing booth with a control station having such features as navigation, drawer activation for providing medicines and food to patients, sample collection and audio-visual communication. The cost of this device is less than Rs 5 lakh and the weight is less than 80 kilograms.
“This Hospital Care Assistive Robotic Device HCARD, could be effective for frontline healthcare officials dealing with COVID-19 patients in delivering services while maintaining mandatory physical distancing,” said Professor Dr Harish Hirani, Director, CSIR-CMERI.

HCARD, a robotic device

CSIR-CMERI is working on war footing to minimize the impact of COVID-19 through technological interventions. As spelled out by WHO, personal protective equipment (PPE) is very important in preventing transmission of coronavirus in the society, thus the Institute has channelized its resources optimally to develop PPE and community-level safety equipment for helping the public at large and healthcare institutions.

Scientists at CMERI have also developed a few other customized technologies, including disinfection walkway, road sanitiser unit, face mask, mechanical ventilator and hospital waste management facility.

    yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever
