ITS Campus, ITS News – ITS once again showed its concern for medical personnel in dealing with Covid-19 patients. This time, ITS handed over its Robot Medical Assistant – Unair (RAISA) to assist the medical personnel in charge of treating Covid-19 patients at Athletes Village Emergency Hospital, Jakarta.

ITS through PT ITS Tekno Sains has submitted and signed the record of transfer of RAISA robot and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to Head of Health Kodam (Kakesdam) Jaya CKM Colonel Dr Stefanus Dony conducted online, Friday (28/8) ago. Previously, RAISA has also been used in several hospitals including Airlangga University Hospital (RSUA), Dr Soetomo Hospital, Husada Utama Hospital, and Saiful Anwar Hospital Malang.

ITS Rector Prof Dr Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng revealed RAISA Robot was ordered by Pertamina Group through PT ITS Tekno Sains and handed over to assist medical personnel at Wisma Atlet Emergency Hospital, Jakarta which is currently handled by Kodam Jaya Health. “One RAISA robot unit delivered is a type of High Care Unit (HCU) for isolation rooms for COVID-19 patients,” he explained.

According to this professor of Electrical Engineering ITS, the patients who were mean to be assisted by RAISA robots are patients in a state of severe symptomatic and can still be active.

Knowing that RAISA has key features such as two-way media monitor communication, it is also able to operate for eight hours a day for one battery charge. “Also, this robot can prevent collisions if there is an object in front of it and give a warning,” said the rector who is familiarly called Ashari today.

Ashari also hopes that ITS innovation through RAISA, a hospital assistant robot, can help the country and the public in the handling of Covid-19. “With this robot (RAISA) it is also expected that the potential transmission of Covid-19 to medical personnel can be further minimized,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, Director of PT ITS Tekno Sains Dr Ir I Ketut Gunarta MT added that before RAISA robots can be used operationally, the team from Wisma Atlet and Kodam Jaya conduct training first. “RAISA robot use and maintenance training is conducted online with RAISA ITS team of robot technicians,” he said.
