WHAT WE DO
Reactive Robotics' goal is to set the new gold standard of Very Early Mobilization of critically ill patients.
By providing medical robotic solutions, we
- assist nurses and therapists in taking care of patients
- enable faster recovery for critically ill patients
- make care more humane by allowing robotics to work hand-in-hand with nurses and therapists
- improve economic efficiency in the healthcare system.
Our clients are hospitals that want to provide their patients with the best possible care during their path towards recovery while supporting their clinical staff with the best available technology.
Better Care for Lower Costs
THE PRESENTATION OF THE VEMO®SYSTEM
In May 2019, Dr. Alexander König, the founder and CEO of Reactive Robotics was able to present our robotic assistance system to the German Chancellor, Dr. Angela Merkel, as well as the Bavarian Prime Minister, Dr. Markus Söder. Both were very interested and impressed by the VEMO®System (the name derives from Very Early MObilization) and its implications for hospitals, medical staff and, ultimately, for the patients of intensive care units.
The video shows the demonstration of the VEMO®System during a presentation of technological highlights in the area of Artificial Intelligence at the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM), which is led by Professor Dr. Sami Haddadin and belongs to the Technical University of Munich.
The healthcare challenge
In our aging society, the cost for healthcare is rising. The healthcare sector of many countries is being pushed to its breaking point:
- An increasing number of patients require care
- A decreasing number of nurses and therapists must shoulder the work
Economic and demographic trends demand increasing efficiency in the healthcare system.
Reactive Robotics addresses these challenges by introducing robot-assisted therapy with the VEMO® system. The VEMO® system takes over the physically demanding task of performing therapy so that nurses and therapists can focus their attention on the patient. This way, the VEMO® system makes mobilization therapy more humane.
Demographic Changes with major Impact on Healthcare
In times of an aging population and a shortage of healthcare professionals, new therapy interventions need to be developed.
Medical advances lead to an increasing survival rate of critically ill patients.
This is reflected in an increasing number of ICU beds – by 2030, Germany alone will need to add 8.000 ICU beds to its existing 27.000.
By 2030, Germany alone is facing a gap in available ICU care-taking personnel of 29.000 nurses - a total of 84.000 nurses would be needed, 55.000 are predicted to be available.
Already today 2.000 nurses in the ICU are missing in Germany.
VEMO® stands for Very Early Mobilization
Making rehabilitation therapy more humane
Reactive Robotics is the first company worldwide to systematically address Very Early Mobilization – VEM – to the critical care unit – with an intelligent, robotic system.
Our solution – the VEMO® system – complements manual therapy
with an adaptive robotic system and supports nurses and therapists in their daily duties.
Nurses and therapists are enabled to fully focus on therapy while being relieved from the physically demanding work of mobilizing the patient. One person can single-handed perform therapy with the patient and speed up the patient´s recovery. In a ward, the available number of care givers can help more patients at a higher frequency of VEM therapy.
We bring VEM Therapy to the patient
– not the patient to the therapy.
Safe and effective for patients and nurses!
During the European Health Congress 2019, our founder and CEO Dr. Alexander König has received the award “Best Boss of the Year 2019”.
Practitioners are convinced: “this robotic support makes really sense for the therapy of our ICU patients”.
