The swabbing robot was intended to help healthcare professionals swab patients for covid-19 so that staff are not at risk of infection.
For employees, swabbing can lead to monotonous working conditions, and employees are most often needed for other important functions as well, so the swabbing robot is expected to be able to ease the pressure on staff and free up hands for other tasks as well as spare employees from monotonous and repetitive work.
The investors in Lifeline Robotics A/S are the Swedish venture fund Norrsken Foundation, REInvest Robotics and SDU. Vækstfonden supports with two million Danish kroner as a convertible loan.
