Walton will hand over the Medicart robot, along with its remote control UV-C light disinfectant system, to the ICT division for clinical trial on Thursday
Walton, the country's leading tech company, has built a Medicart robot to safely deliver food, medicines and other essentials to Covid-19 patients in isolation.
The company will hand over the Medicart robot, along with its remote control UV-C light disinfectant system, to the government's ICT division for clinical trial on Thursday.
The handover ceremony will take place through video conference scheduled at 3pm. State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak and senior officials from the ICT division and Walton will be present at the online event.
Walton's R&D Engineer Alim Hassan Ferdous said the robot, controlled by radio frequency, can cover an area defined by 400 meters or 1300 feet of diameter, and will automatically carry food, medicine, and medical or other equipment to patients in isolation.
Powered by a lithium ion battery, the robot can run uninterrupted for six hours on a full charge.
This robot can be used to treat isolated coronavirus patients or patients with other infectious diseases. A physician can operate this robot via computer, mobile phone or remote control while sitting in a room or anywhere in the world through an operator.
They can provide medical care to the patient as well. It has a camera, microphone and speakers which will allow physicians and patients to communicate with each other through video-conferencing.
In addition to the medical field, the robot can be used in offices, factories, educational institutions, public spaces such as air or sea ports, bus and railway stations and shopping malls.
Alim Hassan Ferdous further said that Walton has also manufactured a remote control UV-C light disinfectant trolley. It is a 253.7 nanometer ray disinfectant that can kill up to 99.99 percent of viruses and bacteria.
The remote controlled UV trolley can be used in hospitals, homes and offices. The use of UV light directly on the human body and eyes is harmful. But the Walton-made UV trolley has a modern protection system.
Walton has also developed and produced another remote control UV-C light thermal germicidal chamber. It destroys germs in two ways- through UV rays and heat.
It uses residual heaters, as a result it can generate moisture-free heat up to 90 degrees with the ability to control the heat automatically.
It also has a modern protection system for the human body and special sensor that automatically shuts off when people or animals are present.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), masks, gloves, utensils and food can be disinfected with this UV-C thermal chamber.
