Taiwan develops 1st robot that manage to apply coronavirus swab testing to patients


Taiwanese firm Brain Navi, a biomedical company, developed a Nasal Swab Robot that will conduct auto COVID-19 detection tests, the company stated.


The Nasal Swab Robot was unveiled at the Bio Asia Taiwan 2020 exhibition where Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, got to see it demonstrated.

The robot automatically recognises the patient’s facial structure to autonomously take the samples without the need of medical staff, the researchers mentioned.

The robot uses some fundamental functions of the innovative “autopilot brain surgery navigation robot” developed by Brain Navi.

This new device is based on some of the capabilities of Brain Navi’s NaoTrac neurosurgical navigation robot, which has already been used in over a dozen clinical cases at Taiwan’s Hualien Tzu-Chi Medical Center.
