The capacity for an important type of rehabilitation is now doubled at the West Danish Center for Spinal Cord Injury in Viborg. The center has invested in our rehabilitation robot ROBERT®. The employees at VCR can now look forward to a better working environment with significantly fewer heavy lifts, while patients can return home earlier.
After a successful development collaboration with Life Science Robotics, the West Danish Center for Spinal Cord Injury at the Regional Hospital Viborg, has now purchased one rehabilitation robot ROBERT®.
“After a month of probation and testing, performed by a focus group composed of therapists from different treatment sites, the center is now convinced that ROBERT® can carry out the tasks required by the nurses”, says lead therapist at Vestdansk Center for Spinal Cord Injury, Lasse Thulstrup. He continues:
“We did a trial run with ROBERT® in February and gained experience, which we brought together in a focus group consisting of people from Life Science Robotics and therapists from different treatment sites. Life Science Robotics showed great responsiveness to our new feature suggestions. Therefore, Robert is now able to solve all our given tasks. We are very much looking forward to working with the robot.”
