Logistical Systems: Sterile Supplies, Medicines & Waste Management

MedAssyst brings to you a series of delivery robots for a variety of applications: they comprise of different designs based on a ‘base model’ and software for different hospital applications, and are completely customisable for the customer.

Our product range is not here to replace people, but to free up the valuable and often time-pressured hospital staff to focus on clinical or patient-centric tasks.

The ingenious software also enhances patient safety with its built in pre-programmable safeguards.


All our robots include the following features:

  ID Recognition

  RFID Recognition

  Laser Navigation

  Automatic positioning

  Automatic charging

  Able to use elevators

  Task Scheduling

The logistical robots detailed on the following pages can be adapted to the customer preferences and hospital challenges.

Medical consumables delivery robot

The medical consumables management system can be used in the operating theatre department or other clinical treatment areas such as cath labs.

It allows medical consumables (implants or single use instruments) usually held in a dedicated storage area and sometimes demanded in more than one operating room to be available, thereby avoiding delays or minimizing staff time.

The system is connected with HIS (Hospital Information System) to order and automate distribution between the surgery and the secondary warehouse. It can achieve closed-loop traceability of eg implants from storage to post-operative use.

Regulated Pharmaceuticals Delivery Robot

The intelligent mobile medicine cabinet management system is based on the robotic distribution system. It strictly abides by the relevant drug regulations or hospital policy.

This robot can be used in anaesthetics to ensure the timely supply of pharmaceuticals on-demand, while maintaining traceability and records of anesthesia use.

This is achieved through real-time checks of each doctor's usage and empty bottle/vial recovery.

Heavy Load Distribution Robot

The heavy load distribution robot offers an unmanned, automated answer to the movement of loads between departments, such as SSU to operating theatres, or even as an automated transport system within large SSU units.

It represents a closed-loop management robotic distribution system. The software is capable of tracking/tracing across the process from equipment package from the supply room to the operating room or other departmental area.

The layered design also supports the intelligent recovery and movement of postoperative instrument packages: used instrument packages can be promptly transported, without delay, to the central supply room for disinfection, reducing the workload of medical staff.

The shelves can be loaded and unloaded automatically, and hold weights of up to 200KG (the equivalent of the weight of two adult men). This means it can transport heavy goods such as instrument trays and saline bags.

Cabinet Distribution Robot

Recommended for in-hospital distribution of saline bags to or within wards, or instrument trays between theatres/departments
The shelf accessories can be automatically loaded and unloaded, the cabinet can be customized, and support multi-point distribution.

Two compartment models support large-scale medical supplies distribution in the operating theatre departments or supplies within hospital departments.

The robot represents a solution to congestion of large-scale material distribution during peak hours of the hospital, reduces the workload of frontline medical staff, and optimizes the allocation of medical resources.

Medical Waste Robot

The medical waste management and transportation system is based on a robotic distribution system.   It is equipped with a removable trash bin and a fixed trash bin support, so waste from operating theatres and clinical treatment areas can be directly transported to the waste repository collection station as per the hospital system. It offers safe management of postoperative medical waste with minimal personnel handling.

Throughout the process, routes can be independently planned, and navigated. The robots can autorun as per pre-selected schedule or deployed on demand. 

The system offers an automated solution to improving the efficiency and accuracy of medical waste treatment and help to reduce infection risk through minimized handling of potential contaminants.
