PTR Robots is a subsidiary venture company of Blue Ocean Robotics which is the majority shareholder in PTR Robots and specialized in developing, producing and selling professional service robots. PTR Robots was founded in 2016 as a result of a close collaboration with healthcare professionals.
The purpose of PTR Robots is to bring next-generation patient transfer and rehabilitation solutions to healthcare sectors.
Today, patient lifts are passive, unstable and require multiple caregivers to complete them. They are passive in the sense that the patient is not an active part of the lift and in this way his or her recovery time may be prolonged. The existing tools for patient transfer are often characterized as rigid, and over time increase the risk of injuries for the caregivers using them but also for the patients involved. At the same time, multiple tools are needed to perform both patient lifts and rehabilitation.
With PTR Robots patient lifting and rehabilitation become easier, more efficient and of higher quality for both patients and caregivers. By moving from passive patient lifts to active and sensing patient lifts, rehabilitation of the patient is started much sooner. When rehabilitation is started early, the patient is more likely to recover faster and function normally again.
