Personal Robots to Monitor Elderly Vital Signs
CONYERS, GA, Jun 15, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced today that their initial evaluation of a miniaturized, solid state onboard blood pressure and pulse rate monitor indicates it can be readily incorporated into its personal robot, the CareBot. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging mobile robotics industry revolutionizing their development and usage with "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service."
"We believe that the incorporation of an onboard blood pressure/pulse rate monitoring system for our CareBots will further enhance their cost effective, utilitarian capabilities. Our CareBot's ability to automatically follow and verbally remind a designated care receiver at predetermined dates and times that their blood pressure/pulse rate needs to be checked by this onboard, integrated monitoring system will enable a higher level of safety, security and cost savings for those at home and in nursing homes, assisted care facilities, hospitals, etc.," observed Martin Spencer, President/CEO of GeckoSystems.
The CareBot is a multitasking personal robot incorporating advanced, proprietary AI engines such as GeckoNav, GeckoChat, GeckoTrak, and/or GeckoScheduler. These disparate AI engines work in parallel and/or serially continuously. Given the CareBot's network connectivity and easy Internet accessibility, reporting of vital signs and other various healthcare events outside of normal can be quickly sent by telephone, instant or text messaging, and/or email.
"While all of us here at GeckoSystems are excited about this development, due to the nature of the upcoming discussions, I feel it is in the best interest of all parties involved to withhold the name of the Japanese firm providing this vital sign monitoring subsystem at this time. I believe their interest in us is not only due to our focus on personal robots for eldercare, but also due to our advanced sensor fusion skills and technologies. This is one more substantive answer to 'what does it (the CareBot) do?,'" concluded Spencer.
GeckoSystems uses sensor fusion extensively for actionable situation awareness in their complete multitasking personal robot, the CareBot. Their mobile robot's hardware and software architecture is designed to be expandable and upgradeable such that many years of cost effective usage can be readily achieved.
