VR-based Telerobotics Medical Care, Performing Closed Suction for CoVID -19 Patient

Partnered with MD-TEC (, this video demonstrates use of teleoperated robotic arms and virtual reality interface to perform closed suction for self-ventilating tracheostomy patients during CoVID -19 outbreak.

Use of closed suction is recommended to minimise aerosol generated during this procedure. This robotic method avoids staff exposure to virus to further protect NHS. This project was funded by innovate UK as part of Business-led innovation in response to global disruption.
