The ZenZoe mobile robot, developed by ASTI Mobile Robotics and BOOS Technical Lightning, and used in a pilot project at the University Hospital of Burgos, has allowed the disinfection of a total of 3.055 square meters that correspond to a hospitalization floor, the intermediate resuscitation area and eight operating theatres.
ASTI Mobile Robotics and BOOS Technical Lightning have collaborated with the University Hospital of Burgos (HUBU), which depends on the Castilla and Leon Health Department, in the use of robotics disinfection to combat COVID19, thus placing it at the forefront of Spanish hospitals that adopt technological solutions to face coronavirus and guarantee the protection of their healthcare personnel and patients. The Preventive Medical Service has valued very positively the use of the ZenZoe mobile robot developed by ASTI Mobile Robotics and BOOS Technical Lighting, which uses the ultraviolet C light and combines efficiency and safety by reducing the viral load up to 99,99%, according to the results that have been verified for coronavirus by the NBQ laboratory of the National Institute of Aerospace Technology in collaboration with the Military Emergency Unit.
Thanks to the use of ZenZoe mobile robot in a pilot project that has been developed without economic compensation by the HUBU, the hospital has managed to disinfect a total of 3.055 square meters corresponding to a hospitalization floor, the intermediate resuscitation area and the surgical block C, where 8 of the 24 operating theatres that the hospital has are located, which have been used during this pandemic as conditioned areas of UVIs and Covid patient operating theatres. Additionally, this technological solution allows to map in detail all the routes and spaces to be disinfected, with the required calculation programming and proximity to the parameters, equipment, furniture, etc… and with the desired passing frequency depending on the needs. As it is an autonomous system, the operator’s exposure to the physical risk of radiation is also avoided, but he must always be equipped with the appropriate personal protective equipment”.
