(KhaleejTimes) Students at Dubia’s The Millennium School have designed and built a robot to collect, sort and transport biomedical waste. The machine will reduce unnecessary casualties of infection/negligence while handling patients infected with contagious diseases.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has estimated that the illegal or sometimes accidental reuse of medical syringes and other contaminated equipment have caused innumerable unnecessary deaths by spreading contagious diseases like AIDS, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, bird flu, and mad cow diseases. These are commonly referred to as an ‘occupational hazard’ amongst medical workers. The issues were so serious that many governments passed laws and penalties as early as 1990 to help curb it.
