Cutting Edge Wireless-Based Intravenous Stand Robot

Abstract : Intravenous (IV) stands are biomedical healthcare supportive tools utilized worldwide on daily basis. IV stands carry bags which deliver medications to patients through intravenous injections. IV infusion works based on the weight of the IV tubing fluid. The higher the bag is hung, the greater the pressure triggering the IV fluid to move downward through the tubing. The fluid has to be delivered to the patient until the nurse replaces the bag. Both patients and nurses aide in mobilizing the stand. Several (IV) stands designs exist. The basic shortcoming of the IV stands available in the market is that they are not feasibly maneuvered by patients and/or nurses. Also, IV stands do not contain an intrinsic alarm which alert both the patient and the nurse when the whole saline is delivered and the bag is emptied. To improve current IV stand designs and enhance the healthcare system we aim to design a novel IV stand Robot, and enrich our IV stand Robot design with an alarm system.
