The company confirmed that the Cobi robot would be a less terrifying alternative to the needle, especially as it relies on needle-free injection technology, using a high-pressure jet, which ensures that the contents of the vaccine are injected deep into the arm tissues.
According to an article published by the Canadian Waterloo University, the robot arm features a LiDAR sensor, which allows a three-dimensional map of the body of the person wishing to receive the vaccine, which is analyzed to determine the best place for an injection.
Then, the patient receives an order to get ready for the imaging, specifying where to stand, his position, and whether it is necessary to remove a piece of his clothing.
With the robot entering service, it will be easier, cheaper, faster and safer to vaccinate large numbers of people, as it will likely reduce the risks of doctors and nurses being exposed to the virus.
