Shenyang-based Siasun Robot and Automation Co donated a total of 31 robots and smart medical ancillary equipment for the fight against the novel coronavirus epidemic in Shenyang, capital of Northeast China's Liaoning province, on Wednesday.
The donation, valued at 6.1 million yuan ($872,775) includes seven medical distribution robots, 14 catering service robots and 10 smart nursing beds.
Medical distribution robots and smart nursing beds have been sent to the First Affiliated Hospital with China Medical University in Shenyang for nursing and treatment of novel coronavirus patients and suspected cases.
"The equipment will play an important role in the daily care of patients and drug distribution," said Teng Weiyu, deputy director of the hospital. "The robots can reduce the frequency of contact between people, which is of great significance in preventing the transmission of the virus in the hospital."
The catering service robots have been sent to 14 hotels for receiving tourists from affected areas, service and food distribution, which can help prevent the spread of the pathogen via personal contact.
According to the company, the robots have facial recognition capabilities and voice recognition, and can perform well in reception tasks. (China Daily)
