Elderly care sector

PPM has made the important, strategic decision, to move into the elderly care sector. This, by taking advantage of the current, deep knowledge from industry, and extending this with the medical, psychological, and nursing perspective, into new, cutting-edge technology.

The special focus is service robots for nursing homes, to meet the future`s requirements to patient centered care; represented by high mental and physical activation, individual care and service on demand, and instant patient – relatives contact and communication.

The goal is to provide a service robot, capable of creating a patient – robot relation, so the robot can take a master role, when required, and establish a patient – robot collaboration to accomplish the task.

Different from current robots, our robot will use "robot body language" to communicate with the patients, because this strengthens the patient relation, increases the flexibility and reduces the cost of the robot.

Due to the highly, multidisciplinary challenge, PPM's team is strengthened with expertise in nursing, psychology, ethology and logistics.


Why using service robots in elderly care?

In the modern society, health and living standard are improving, resulting in an increase in average life expectancy. This in turn creates a continuous increase in the demand for human resources in elderly care. Due to the increasing life expectancy, the staff needs in healthcare services will be significant already in 2030, and even doubled by 2060. The shortage of nurses is 5.9 million worldwide.

This is why mobile service robots are gradually getting an important role, and service provider in modern, patient centred nursing homes.

The robot can play an important role, to facilitate the work, streamline the workflow and handle interrupting ad-hoc tasks. This, to free up time for the staff to focus on their core work.

This represents the modern, resource optimal way to organize the nursing homes. Let the staff utilize their professional skills for care and medical treatment. Let the robot take care of the overhead work and disturbances.

The outcome is increased patient welfare, reduced costs and increased patient safety !
