BOZEN, Italy, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Robotics today announced the European launch of its i.v.STATION Robot with a demonstration at the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists in Barcelona, Spain [Booth 21, Level -1] next week. Health Robotics also announced an updated list of the i.v.STATION installations around the world, and the simultaneous showcase of CytoCare(TM), the world's only Chemotherapy IV Robot, at the EAHP booth of one of its strategic partners (B|Braun, Booths C9-C12).
The primary challenges in today's IV Admixture operations are serious medication errors, high costs, turn-around time, lack of sterility, wasted materials, lack of audit trails, motion injuries, space constraints and difficulty in maintaining adequate and trained staff. i.v.STATION was designed to address these issues and overcome the fact that until now, the range of products and technology available to mitigate these challenges has consisted of variations on the IV "piggyback" bag, outsourcing of IVs, and partial robotic solutions that have seen very limited adoption and success over the past decade. i.v.STATION represents a revolutionary approach in the quest for safe, accurate, efficient, cost effective, and ready-to-administer IV Admixtures. Constructed around a scalable, distributed, and fail-safe architecture, i.v.STATION offers unprecedented final container flexibility, life-critical patient safety, and robotic precision and performance.
Health Robotics has reached agreements for 16 i.v.STATION installations
