On this week’s #Lab_Tube, we introduce the Medical Assistant Robot Laboratory of the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials which has paved a new path for “K-quarantine” by developing a testing robot that can replace humans. The research team has promoted various researches on robot systems for the medical sector. And it has developed a robot technology which enables the collection of samples without direct contacts between doctors and patients.
The robot system consists of master and slave robots. When controlling the master robot, a swab that is attached to the slave robot moves and carries out the sampling process. The research team will make more effort to apply the system to a wider range of medical sites, by promoting its improved safety and suitability for the swab sampling process. We introduce the Medical Assistant Robot Laboratory of the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials, which has strived hard to build a healthier future of mankind.

Along with the continued spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, effective measures that can contain the virus have emerged as a core element for the global economic growth. Last year, the domestic medical devices market achieved a trade surplus for the first time by exporting hand sanitizers and face masks. And it has raised the status of K-quarantine in the global field. A variety of research and development activities have been promoted.
And on this week’s #BizTech_Brunch, we talk about the ongoing development of technologies for the prevention of the COVID-19 pandemic. A digital certification for the verification of COVID-19 vaccination which was developed by the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency, a mobile quarantine bus that can sterilize the whole body as well as a new antibacterial material that can remove bad odors are examples. We introduce various technologies for enhanced quarantine measures, which have led the domestic and overseas markets.

As part of an effort to boost local economies, which have faced stagnation due to the COVID-19 crisis, a lot of local governments have sought various ways to vitalize local currencies. This week on #Hash_Tech, we explore the digitalized mobile local currency systems. Local currencies, which used to be provided in the form of paper or credit card, have continuously evolved by implementing digital and mobile solutions.
In April, 2021 Local Currency Conference in Buyeo was held to promote further growth of the local currency system. Unlike other local currencies that use the existing credit card network, Goodtrae Pay is operated based on the circulative system, which has been implemented for the first time in the domestic field. Also, unlike other local currencies that only emphasize the discount rate, it provides incentives for a certain amount of charged or spent currency. We report on the local currency platforms which have increased the convenience of the local residents and contributed to vitalizing the local economy.
