A student team from the Engineering Department of Mansoura University in Egypt succeeded in inventing a robot capable of providing medical services inside hospitals and medical centers.
The robot is distinguished by its ability to diagnose diseases through artificial intelligence, and to predict diseases based on symptoms for a number of diseases in their early stages, such as different types of cancers, as well as measuring vital indicators such as pressure, sugar and temperature of the patient.
In an interview with "Sky News Arabia", Ahmed Osama, a member of the "Bio Mix" team responsible for the artificial intelligence part of the project, explained that the idea "began in the second half of 2019, by thinking about developing the future of health care in Egypt and linking it to artificial intelligence technology and science." robots".
He added: After the Corona pandemic entered Egypt, we started thinking about how to develop this idea and help medical teams by creating a robot with distinctive characteristics that can provide medical services, medicines and food to patients without forcing medical teams to mix with them.
And he indicated that the robot is characterized by "its ability to focus imaging, which enables it to know the map of the place where it is located, whether it is a hospital or a medical center, and it can receive instructions and room number and deliver medicines and food to it, and it also contains sensors that measure vital body indicators such as temperature, sugar, oxygen and others without The medical team had to deal directly with the situation, especially in isolation hospitals.
