A robot will help donors in Ufa

At the Republican Blood Transfusion Station in Ufa, a “mechanical employee”, the Russian service robot Promobot, has started to work. The robot was created by the Skolkovo resident company of the same name in Perm.

The service robot for medical organizations was created with the support of the Federal Corporation for the Development of Small and Medium Enterprises. The robot can communicate, answer questions, move freely around obstacles, and even measure human health indicators. At the regional blood transfusion station, the promobot meets donors and helps them prepare for the blood collection procedure: non-contact measures the body temperature, donor pressure, height and weight, conducts a conversation. This happens after an appointment with a transfusion doctor, who determines the health of the donor and prescribes the type of donation. According to the developers of the robot, it helps to relieve some of the burdens on medical personnel by performing simple operations, for which the doctor now does not need to be distracted.

“We are confident that the promobot will help draw attention to donation. After all, robots are also interested in keeping people healthy - they were created to help us, to maintain our health, cut back on the stress and cheering up. A blood transfusion station is one of the most unusual places to work for our robots. We already had robots-policemen, nannies and teachers, but we have assembled a robot that does such a good deed, perhaps for the first time” - Oleg Kivokurtsev, Development Director of Promobot.

In addition to measuring health indicators, the robot will also be able to communicate freely with doctors and guests of the institution. Thanks to artificial intelligence, the promobot will be able to maintain a dialogue, tell about blood donation requirements and help find the way to the buffet after the procedure.

The robot was named Donnie - after the word "donation". The name was chosen by residents of Ufa in the social networks of the regional blood transfusion station.

“We are proud that the promobot literally participates in saving people's lives, and we hope that people will be less afraid of robots” - Oleg Kivokurtsev.

The Promobot company was founded in 2015 in Perm. Since the same year he has been a resident of Skolkovo. Today Promobot is the largest manufacturer of autonomous service robots in Europe. Promobot robots can be found at Sberbank, the Museum of Contemporary History of Russia, Baltimore-Washington Airport, Dubai Mall. All of the company's products are manufactured and developed in Russia.

In January 2021, the implementation of the social project by the National Fund for Health Development, dedicated to the development of regular blood donation in the capital, "Donation Out of Season", was launched. The project events will be held with the support of the Committee for Public Relations and Youth Policy of Moscow from January to December 2021.

A general assessment of the current situation in the field of blood and bone marrow donation by the participants of the donation institute was obtained in the course of a sociological study by the National Foundation for Healthcare Development and VCIOM "Actual problems of the development of donation of blood and its components in Russia." The study was conducted in 2020; 6,500 respondents from 83 regions of Russia took part in it.
