Deenova’s robots and automated systems operate today in about 50 European hospitals, in Italy they are present in many of the hospitals involved in the front line during the Coronavirus emergency period, where Deenova also took care of the packaging of drug therapies for home care of Covid patients.
How do Deenova robots work?
“Our robotic systems – explains the CEO Giorgio Pavesi – allow the therapies required by the doctor to be prepared for nurses through a computerized prescription system. The robot finds them packaged and customized in the drawers of the distribution trolley.
