Poseidon – A development project with unusually great potential.
Robotics Care AB was founded in 2013 by innovator Thomas Ryberg to develop and commercialise Poseidon. Robotics Care AB has in a few short years built up important collaborations in relevant sectors and strengthened its position as an innovation company focusing on solutions to improve people’s quality of life.
Poseidon has attracted serious interest on a large scale from many actors. Not least on the customer side, where local authorities and county councils are the primary target groups. The innovation is the brainchild of Robotics Care AB, supported by the following project funders:
- The Västmanland Research and Development Council
- The Jimmy Dahlsten Fund
- Västmanland County Administrative Board
- The Norrbacka Eugenia Foundation
The vision will become a reality in 2016
Within the framework of the development work, Robotics Care AB engages several manufacturing companies and consultancy firms. The project also collaborates with four universities and research centres, alongside local authorities and hospitals. Tests and verification are conducted continuously in collaboration with private and publicly owned old people’s homes, local authorities and hospitals. At the time of printing (autumn 2015), the project has reached prototype stage 4 and preparations for the next stage are ongoing. Poseidon will be shown for the first time as a clinically tested and CE-labelled product at the end of 2016.
“City of Västerås has been following Poseidon’s development for a long time and we believe the solution has great potential to make a substantial difference – for both individuals and care providers.”
Mats Rundkvist, welfare technology and e-health strategist, City of Västerås
“Based on the user tests already made, I am convinced that as good as everyone will prefer the hygiene robot to being washed in the traditional way.”
Maria Gill, nurse
“The hygiene robot is a unique innovation that was developed to meet a distinct need. The product saves money and staff in the care sector but its big advantage is that the user will experience increased integrity and greater independence. It was not difficult to decide to support this product.”
Christer Petersson, Director of Research, Västmanland Research and Development Council
