This paper describes the emerging role of robots in health care and integrated environments
with special concerns related to the management and control of the spread of novel coronavirus
2019. The primary use of such robots is to reduce human interaction and ensure cleanliness,
fertility, and support in the hospitals and facilities such as isolation. This will lead to a reduction in
the life-threatening risk for medical professionals and physicians who have played a significant
role in the management of infectious diseases like coronavirus. The purpose of this work is to highlight
the importance of medical robots in general and to link their use in the field of medical assistance
so that hospital administrators can use the medical robots for different treatment processes.
The work involves the design and development of an AUTONOMOUS and IoT CONTROLLED
MEDICAL ASSISTANCE ROBOT (AIMED), which is designed as a potential answer for any irresistible
ailment, particularly for Coronaviruses Outbreak. AIMED ROBOT is utilized to limit individual
to-individual contact and to guarantee cleaning, sanitization and backing in emergency clinics
and comparable offices, for example, food and medication conveyance in isolate emergency
clinics/offices. Voice communication can also be established between the control room and patient
through a wireless network. This data is sent to the doctor and staff using a communication network
that helps in monitoring the patient's condition without human interaction. Hand Sanitization,
food delivery and waste collection system are also provided in the robot for quarantine zones. This
is despite the popularity of telemedicine, which also applies to similar situations. In fact, the recent
success of the Korean and Chinese health sectors in gaining effective control of the coronavirus epidemic
would not have been possible without the use of state-of-the-art technology.
Background: In the quick advancement of innovation, there are numerous sorts of robots with different
details and capacities. The AIMED Robots are being developed for hospitals to deliver
medicines, food and for taking live data from the patient directly. A few issues are confronted in regards
to the limitation of explicit places around and inside the clinic because different robots were
utilizing landmark recognition. Moreover, the issues faced when the robot is to convey things to
any patient from any place should be taken care of.
Objective: The objective of this work is to highlight the importance of medical robots in general
and to link their use in the field of medical assistance so that hospital administrators can use the
medical robots for different treatment processes.
Methods: The work involves the design and development of an AUTONOMOUS and IoT CONTROLLED
MEDICAL ASSISTANCE ROBOT (AIMED), which is designed as a potential answer
for any irresistible ailment particularly for Coronaviruses Outbreak.
Results: AIMED Robot goes through three testing stages. In the final stage, one complete embedded
system is designed by embedding each tested sub-system and then this final embedded system is
tested. All the project goals, which were planned as ‘Solution to Problem Statement’, have been
Conclusion: This paper provides an overview of the robotics and therapeutic potential of robotics
in specific environments with COVID-19 epidemic control. The AIMED robot introduced in this
paper is a piece of emergency clinic and care focus computerization framework. Multiple patients
are placed for stop-over and doctor’s prescription regarding patient health. It can be very useful to
counter infectious diseases like SARS, MERS or Covid-19 etc. This work confirms that the introduction
of medical robots has significantly increased the safety and quality of health care systems
compared to manual systems due to the digitalization of health care.
