- Ultrasound examinations over distance.
- Elimination of occupational injuries.
- Improved diagnostic image quality.
- Increased productivity.
Medirob is a robot used for medical ultrasound examinations. The robot holds the ultrasound transducer for the sonographer. The robotic arm is manually controlled by the sonographer. Medirob is primarily used for echocardiography examinations.
There are two main benefits of using the robot. First we can eliminate the ergonomic problems associated with cardiac ultrasound examinations. Let us keep our sonographers healthy. Secondly the robot can be controlled from anywhere remotely. With Medirob advanced ultrasound examinations can be provided over great distances.
Eliminating MSD & RSI
Work related musculoskeletal disorders (WR-MSD) and repetitive stress injury (RSI) are very common among sonographers. This is a serious problem that must be addressed.
Ultrasound examinations of the heart involve a static and very uncomfortable working posture for the sonographer. More than 80% of sonographers experience shoulder, neck and back pains which can result in long term sickness absence. In the worst case the sonographer may not ever be able to return to this job again. This can also cause significant disruptions at the cardiac- or medicine departments, because of the difficulty in finding competent substitutes for injured sonographers.

The robot holds the transducer and the robot can be controlled from anywhere. This extends the reach of the sonographer from arms length to as far as the internet can reach. Medirob is designed from the beginning to enable distance examinations. Patients in remote areas can get access to highly advanced health care without having to travel long distances.
To enable distance examinations we provide a complete telemedicine system around the robot.
- High quality and low latency video and audio for communication.
- Ultrasound images in high quality full resolution full motion with low latency.
- Ultrasound machine remote control.
- Robot remote control.
