Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - Feb 25, 2017 - ChartaCloud Technologies LLC today announced that its robotics business unit, ROBOTTECA, has selected the OhmniLabs’ robot “Ohmni” for the ‘age-at-home’ and health care telepresence markets. The MyCareVisiontm offering from ChartaCloud pairs the Ohmni telepresence robot with MyHomeReach, a unified care giver/care recipient health care communications, monitoring and assisted daily living management application.
“At ChartaCloud we remain deeply engaged in advancing robotics and home health care applications. We became quickly convinced that the Ohmni’s design and features make it the first robot platform we considered ideal for in home use due to its mobility, responsiveness and non-intrusive presence in a home care setting and for its use as a social companion. We have been tracking the potential of assisted home care companion robotics for a number of years and we are confident that OhmniLabs’ Ohmni is the correct use case solution,” said Lauryn Schimmel, managing director, Chartacloud.
The company stated that the Ohmni robot’s major features include: No software to install, remote driving by caregivers and family members via a web-based browser, moving neck providing a huge field of view vertically and horizontally, always-on floor view camera, silent motion, auto docking with glide-lock charging station, far field microphone and powerful speaker, light weight and easily foldable for transport.
MyHomeReach software from HealthComms serves as an application installed on the Ohmni robot and provides ‘one touch’ interaction for connecting care recipients, care givers and family members via instant messaging, immersive, high definition tele-presence, one touch health status monitoring and reporting, call for ‘HELP’ signaling, audio messaging and light signaling to user’s events or reminder awareness, and assisted daily living (ADL) plans such as medication plan adherence.
“The Ohmni has given me the priceless ability to stay in touch with my family on a daily basis. It is convenient, easy to use and an exciting experience,” said Thelma Ackley, an Ohmni user.
“We use FaceTime on iPad a lot and I wasn’t sure how a robot could be different. But when [my son] Charlie showed up it was REALLY LIKE he was there in person. He drove me nuts running around the house but it was AMAZING to all sit down for dinner. Loved the experience,” said Mia Grado an Ohmni user.
The Ohmni robot and MyCareVision services can be purchased separately.
“With Ohmni based MyCareVision we are now firmly into the new era of affordable robotic home companionship and remote observation. We know from experience that many family members and professional care givers can’t be with their loved ones or clients 24/7. With Ohmni they can now be instantly there. We also know that isolation, feelings of insecurity and loneliness, are life threatening and have a life shortening impact. An Ohmni delivers positive life changing transformation in the lives of those needing health care and social engagement. Home care services now have a new high impact assistant to help reduce hospital admissions,” added Schimmel.
“We are extremely pleased in the selection by ChartaCloud’s ROBOTTECA of Ohmni. Their experience in robotics and their joining of Ohmni with their home health care applications and services creates an industry leading advance in robotic based home care and companionship,” said Thuc Vu, co-founder and ceo, OhmniLabs.
MyHomeReach is a product of HealthComms Ltd. Dublin Ireland.
