Did you know nurses and doctors spend up to 30% of their days on nonclinical work? Clinical environments have a need for efficiency and automation technology to safely work around people in order to maintain exceptional standards of care and service. Diligent Robotics, cofounded by Andrea Thomaz and Vivian Chu, provides truly collaborative robots to work next to clinical teams. Moxi, an autonomous robot for hospital material handling applications, keeps clinical environments running by assisting with tasks ranging from running labs to picking up and delivering patient medication—all so medical personnel can focus on patient care.
In this episode of Crazy Hard Robots, Tom chats with Andrea Thomaz, a professor-turned-CEO and founder of Diligent Robotics.
