How do we keep care personal?
Robot Care Systems (RCS) firmly believes that robotized aid for the elderly is an important instrument in keeping care personal. It’s more than a challenge; it’s our mission. The RCS multidisciplinary team consists of 16 highly educated, extremely motivated designers and developers. Most of them have been working in robotics for many years. We also work together closely with many different healthcare professionals.
The opportunity for an independent and active life
Our first healthcare robot is LEA, which means Lean Empowering Assistant. LEA functions autonomously and helps users in their day-to-day life. Our robots take care of stability, security and comfort, allowing the elderly to maintain control of their lives. This makes the user less dependent on their carers for certain tasks. This gives family members and carers more time for personal attention.
What can LEA do?
One of the developments in healthcare is the regrettable fact that fewer people are available who give care. LEA changes this: it is a healthcare robot on wheels that can complement humans where there is a shortage. Think of:
- help in moving around;
- avoiding obstacles;
- connecting with the alarm center;
- fall detection;
- help with bathroom visits;
- reminders for daily activities;
- logging activity levels;
- making reports (when privacy settings allow);
- fitness exercises;
- dancing (i.e. slow foxtrot and waltz);
- picking up and bringing objects;
- basic audio/video communication with carers, family and friends.
Active and Safe
Robot Care Systems (RCS) develops and builds independently operating aids for the healthcare market. By using robot technology, we create products that support the elderly in maintaining active and safe control over their own lives. This allows the elderly to remain independent and live in their own environment.
Our care robot LEA originated from the European ‘Silver’ project. Silver stimulates companies and knowledge institutions such as RCS to come up with solutions which allow those living at home to remain independent and active for longer and allow healthcare time to be applied more efficiently.
