HOW ROBOTS ARE HELPING DOCTORS SAVE LIVES IN THE CANADIAN NORTH

« HOW ROBOTS ARE HELPING DOCTORS SAVE LIVES IN THE CANADIAN NORTH Remote communities often lack access to diagnostic ultrasonography services. This gap disproportionally affects Indigenous pregnant women in the Canadian North and results in increases in maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality. We are pioneering the use of an innovative tele-robotic ultrasound system that allows an expert sonographer to perform a diagnostic ultrasound study, in real time, in a distant location. Research shows that robotic ultrasonography is comparable to standard sonography and is accepted by most patients. » cf. article Pr.

USA – FDA APPROVAL FOR MELODY

The telerobotic ultrasound system MELODY is now cleared for marketing by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in USA. With nearly 10 million square kilometers for 320 million inhabitants, the US territory is a natural market for the development of tele-sonography. T-MedRobotics is the US importer of the MELODY solution. Contact: Claude BOBIN claude.bobin@t-medrobotics.com http://www.t-medrobotics.com...

CANADA – MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO TRANSPORT PATIENTS

The lack of access to a pre-maternal ultrasound test is concerning. “We will be able to offer them access to ultrasounds in a culturally safe manner, in their own communities, with their own families,with the expertise that’s available to the rest of us,” “We spend millions of dollars transporting patients from their home communities to the centralized system, so to be able not only to provide the ultrasound in their own communities; we’ll avoid the travel expenses, and importantly it will determine potential complications early enough so it will be less expensive to treat.”...

TELEMEDICINE MOBILE UNIT

TELEMEDICINE MOBILE UNIT TIMM EMBARKS MELODY ROBOT ON THE PYRENEES ROADS TecHopital article about TIMM project (mobile medical imaging), A mobile medical unit connected by satellite, 10 meters long and 3 wide, in which there are radiology, mammography, ultrasound, retinology, dermatoscopy and cardiology equipments. The TIMM medical truck offers nursing home patients and those located in islolated rural areas access to many diagnoses. The aim of the research project is to combat medical desertification and help seniors stay in their own homes, in remote areas away from radiology clinics (practices), but also, to make tele-sonography of visceral, digestive and cardiac pathologies accessible,...

EUROPEAN MAGAZINE HEALTH MANAGEMENT – Article about MELODY in Canada

Robotic Ultrasound Imaging: Improving Access to Care for Rural and Remote Populations (Canada) This article has been published into the European Health Management magazine. It describes the work of Dr. Ivar MENDEZ in Canada about the uses of the robotic remote ultrasound MELODY solution. « Approximately 20% of the Canadian population live in rural and remote communities with limited access to imaging due to lack of radiologists, technologists and infrastructure in these communities. Sonography is unique in that it is an operator- and user-dependent imaging modality and the skill and experience of the operator is paramount to accurate diagnosis. Telerobotic sonography opens up...

RSNA 2016 communication: « Telerobotic Ultrasound System May Improve Access to Care in Underserved Areas »

During the annual event of the RSNA "Radiological Society of North America", Dr. Scott J. Adams of the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine introduce the MELODY study in Canada: "The use of a telerobotic ultrasound (US) system allows sonographers and radiologists to perform US exams remotely with minimal training and set-up. The approach may provide an opportunity to establish remote US clinics in areas lacking skilled sonographers and radiologists. Telerobotic sonography may facilitate routine studies, after-hours sonography for emergent cases, or access to subspecialized sonography which would otherwise not be available, said Scott J. Adams...

GUADELOUPE: Telerobotic ultrasound for Heart failure screening

"Heart failure is the first cardiac emergency at the University Hospital of Guadeloupe," according to the regional health agency (ARS). By 2014, the Picasso study, conducted in the Pointe-à-Pitre hospital's emergency department, showed a re-admission rate of 37% two months after admission to acute heart failure, A death rate of 18.8% after one month, and almost 37% at 6 months. MELODY tele-echocardiography technology makes it possible to "detect people at risk" and to "diagnose" people affected, Mona Hedreville assures. According to her, "60% of hospitalizations" for cardiac problems "could be avoided" thanks to this device. "It saves transportation costs, hospitalization, time...

European Hospital NewsPaper – Pr. Michel CLAUDON

New article into the European Hospital NewsPaper. Pr. Michel CLAUDON and his team (University Hospital of Nancy in France) share their experiences with MELODY: « The team were quite surprised at how quickly they adapted to using the system, within two-three examinations ‘to use a dummy probe honestly became completely natural’. Also the images provided are completely compatible with the hospital’s PACS, so they could be automatically archived for future reference.» Access to the full article....
