Revolve Robotics, a leading innovator in robotic telepresence, today announced seamless integration between its innovative Kubi robotic telepresence platform and JACO, a leading manufacturer of mobile computer carts for the healthcare industry. Together, their combined solutions deliver multiple new options for hospitals, physicians, psychiatrists, and other healthcare professionals looking for a mobile platform to deliver engaging, productive telemedicine.

"Kubi's robotic telepresence really gives us a powerful telemedicine solution. Its ability to enable the remote clinician to control the engagement removes a significant burden from onsite staff while dramatically increasing productivity and engagement," said Jerry Faiella, vice president of Sales and Marketing with JACO. "Our UltraLite series of mobile carts now give healthcare professionals the ability to deliver more personal care from anywhere at a price point that any organization can afford."

Kubi, which users can experience right now by directing their Chrome or Firefox browser to this link, leverages the conferencing capabilities of today's tablets by introducing a robotic platform or cradle on which the tablet sits. The resulting telepresence robot is then "driven" by the remote video-conferencing participant. Kubi thus turns passive video conferencing callers into active participants, as remote callers use Kubi to "look around" the room and actively engage with meeting participants.

The joint solution from JACO and Revolve enables healthcare organizations to bring powerful, engaging telepresence anywhere it may be needed within an organization's campus. With myriad form factors sure to meet the needs of the most specific application, JACO has created the ideal mobile platform for Kubi in the form of its Kubi carts. These carts can deliver interactive video collaboration anywhere on site. It is ideal for quarantine situations, remote contact between the patient and his or her family, clinician-to-clinician contact, or clinician-to-interpreter contact.

"We are thrilled to integrate our technology with JACO, the industry's ‘gold standard' for mobile computing carts for healthcare," said Marcus Rosenthal, Revolve Robotics' co-founder and CEO. "With the entire telemedicine market poised to hit $27.3 billion dollars by next year, there is clearly a significant amount of demand for this type of solution."

For parties interested in learning more about Revolve's joint solutions with JACO, you can contact Matt Rossini, marketing and communications manager or stop by JACO's booth # 4712 at this year's HIMSS 2015 conference and tradeshow, taking place in Chicago April 12-16.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
