Charlotte Children's Hospital Gets a Delivery from Aethon's Train-Themed Robot This Fall
Date:8/8/2008

TUG Delivers Cheer, Medication and Equipment to Young Patients and Helps

Raise Money for Make-A-Wish Foundation

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Aethon Inc. today announced general availability of its train-themed "JR" autonomous mobile robot to children's hospitals across the country. Also, Aethon will make a donation to the national Make-A-Wish Foundation for each JR TUG that is deployed. The JR TUG was initially introduced at the University of California -- San Francisco (UCSF) Children's Hospital, and is currently delivering equipment to patients at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

In addition, Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, has agreed to place a JR TUG into service early this fall. Levine Children's Hospital, one of the newest and most technologically sophisticated specialty hospitals in the country, opened its doors to pediatric patients in December. The Levine robot is being funded by a grant from the Dreamcatcher Society, a local philanthropic organization that supports the hospital.

Modeled after the title character in the children's book "The Little Engine that Could," JR was originally developed to help grant a wish for Jericho Rajninger, a seven-year old leukemia patient from Larkspur, California, and was donated to UCSF Children's Hospital through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

As part of his chemotherapy treatment Jericho had to take more than 4,000 pills. He realized that the prospect of all that medicine could be frightening for other children. Jericho believed that having the medications delivered by a robot modeled after a train might make the prospect of all those pills more pleasant.

"We were honored to make Jericho's wish to help other sick children a reality," said Aldo Zini, CEO of Aethon. "We are extremely pleased that the JR robots are being deployed in other children's hospitals and hope that they will in some sense help sick children and their parents na
