  • Accomplishments

  • Pyxis Corporation, a subsidiary of Cardinal Health, Inc. acquired

  • HelpMate Robotics, Inc.) of Danbury, Connecticut, the developer and manufacturer of advanced mobile robotics systems used primarily in hospitals, laboratories and other medical settings.

  • Commercialization

  • Many HelpMate couriers are in use today, both individually and in small fleets. Pyxis is fully integrating the HelpMate system and patented technology with its leading line of automated pharmaceutical and medical-supply dispensing systems.

  • HelpMate Robotics (originaly Transitions Research) was founded in 1984. During its early years, the company's focus was contract engineering and research and development for third parties, including NASA.

  • Government/Science Applications

  • The two-armed, mobile sensate, research robot project addressed the design of a two-armed, mobile, anthropomorphic testbed to allow development and demonstration of robotic support tasks to lead to design requirement for NASA on-orbit mechanisms. With sponsorship of Congressman Archer, Helpmate presented the case for robotic home care to the Health Care Finance Administration..
