India’s newly constructed robot Mitra take on the Covid patient care

India’s newly constructed robot Mitra take on the Covid patient care

Standing just 5ft tall, Mitra navigates around the hospital wards, guided by facial recognition technology and with a chest-mounted tablet that allows patients and their loved ones to see each other. Developed in recent years by the Bengaluru startup Invento Robotics, Mitra costs around $13,600 (£10,000) and – due to the reduced risk of infection to doctors – has become hugely popular in Indian hospitals during the pandemic.

“Mitra was originally meant for care homes, but was adapted during the pandemic to assist doctors and nurses by taking vital readings, and to help in consultations. We are determined to uphold our reputation for producing urgent, powerful, high-impact reporting on the environment that’s read by around the world,” says Balaji Viswanathan, chief executive of Invento Robotics, which now exports the robot to five countries including the US and Australia.

Since making headlines at its debut in 2017 at an international summit, where it greeted Ivanka Trump and interacted with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mitra has increasingly been put to use in hospitals treating Covid-19 patients. Successful startups have boomed and according to the latest report by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), India is now among the top 10 countries for annual installation of robots in industries.
