GUWAHATI, June 15 - City-based entrepreneur-cum-innovator SN Farid has developed a robot with an aim to ease the risk and workload of health workers engaged in COVID-19 treatment.
Named �Dubori� by the innovator, the robot is currently kept at Uruka, a restaurant owned by Farid for display. It will cost Rs 2.9 lakh and will be available in customised format also.
�The main purpose behind the development of �Dubori� is to help our health workers. Moreover, it could be used at quarantine centres too. Even a doctor can use it to treat a COVID-19 positive patient,� Farid said.
The robot is equipped with an audio-visual system through which a doctor or health worker can easily interact with a patient.
Earlier, in 2019 Farid had developed two robots � Palki and Kakoli. Both the robots are now serving customers in his restaurant.
