Vayyar Imaging and Meditemi have partnered to develop a more intelligent care robot with a range of remote monitoring capabilities, including early detection of Covid-19 symptoms, and alerts for health deterioration and falls.

To enable fast and reliable screening and monitoring for early-stage Covid-19 symptoms, the solution equips Meditemi’s health robots with Vayyar’s 4D intelligent RF sensors.

The robot will perform a quick, touchless scan to analyse the heart rate (BPM), respiratory rate (RPM), waveforms and temperature when a person approaches it within one metre.

The key vital signs and the Covid-19 infection risk level will be displayed on robot’s dashboard soon after the scan.

By offering fast, automatic screening in public spaces with no staff involvement or sanitation requirements, the care robots are expected to restore public confidence.

Furthermore, it can monitor seniors at their residences and alert caregivers in case of emergency situations or health deterioration.
