Vecna has signed a partnership deal with iCobots, a collaborative robotics distributor in Israel. With this agreement, Vecna will further extend the availability of its patented VGo platform to Israeli businesses, medical facilities and educational institutions.
“We are pleased to work with iCobots to introduce this telepresence solution to the Israeli market,” said David Clear, Vecna’s manager of global partnerships.
“The VGo is improving the lives of thousands of people around the world by allowing clinicians to access patients remotely, enabling homebound students to take part in their schooling, and giving business executives the ability to grow their businesses and manage their teams from afar.”
The first VGo implementations are expected in the second quarter of 2016. “We have explored a wide range of potential telepresence solutions, and found Vecna’s VGo, as far more advanced, intuitive, mature, and cost competitive then any of its competitors,” said Gal Inbar, iCobots president.
“We believe telepresence will forever change the accessibility to senior medical staff, and their availability,” said Yoel Hecht, iCobots CEO. “We believe the Israeli market will embrace this technology and adopt it quickly, as it has many other radically disruptive technologies.”
