“We introduced the UVD robots into the market in 2018 and have seen significant growth rates of 400% annually,” he said. “But clearly with the coronavirus crisis, there is a very high demand for our UVD robots, and we are currently doing everything we can to produce and deliver all those that are ordered from all over the world. We are proud that our robots are directly in action in places like Wuhan, Italy, South Korea, Taiwan, Germany, the U.S., and many other places as well.”

The results have been promising, as the robot reduces usage of cleaning supplies, materials, and employees.”Various test results indicate that we are able to reduce the number of infected people with 40% to 50% in those hospital rooms where the UVD robots were applied,” shared Risager.
