NEOTech Fights COVID-19 with Child-Friendly Health Analysis Robot


Reading time ( words)

NEOTech, a leading provider of manufacturing technology and supply chain solutions for brand name OEMs in the industrial, medical and mil/aero markets, announces the company continues their proactive fight against the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic with the large-scale production of the Children’s Morning Check Robot.

Manufactured at the NEOTech Suzhou (China) facility, the Morning Check Robot is a new and innovative piece of health analysis equipment developed by Arrow Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd.

“NEOTech knows there is still a long, hard fight across the globe against the COVID-19 Pandemic, and we stand together as a team to take on that fight,” said Curt Anderson, NEOTech's VP of Business Development. “We are proud of the entire NEOTech team at our Suzhou, China facility. Every day, they continue their inspiring work for Arrow Intelligent Technology to manufacture nine printed circuit board assemblies for each robot, and then assemble the entire finished robot product. Each robot also contains multiple cameras and sensors, along with a monitor and extensive wiring/cable harnesses. We are also thrilled the robot is a pleasant and non-intimidating design to ensure it is very friendly for Kindergarten-aged children to interact with.”

The primary use for the Children’s Morning Check Robot is at entrances of elementary schools, especially for the young Kindergarten-aged children. The robot is designed to look similar to a Panda Bear with an easy-to-view monitor for safe, touch-free interaction. While the outward appearance of the robot is fun for children, it has the important job of using its multiple cameras and sensors to automatically measure each child’s temperature and monitor for any indications of hand-foot-mouth disease. Initial indications find that younger children are not as scared and are more willing to attend school after a brief checkup with the Morning Check Robot, rather than with medical personnel wearing their personal protective equipment (PPE).

NEOTech draws on its extensive experience with the design and manufacturing of complex electro-mechanical products for OEMs to handle the end-to-end manufacturing services for the Children’s Morning Check Robot. With more than 40 years of heritage in electronics manufacturing, NEOTech specializes in high-reliability programs in the Aerospace and Defense industry, Medical Products, and High-Tech Industrial markets. NEOTech has a highly talented engineering group and multiple global manufacturing locations and is well-recognized for its excellent customer service and high-level industry-specific certifications. With this expertise, NEOTech was the ideal partner for Arrow Intelligent Technology to build the Children’s Morning Check Robot.
