GEARS (General Engineering and Robotics Specialists) produces robotic solutions for real world problems. GEARS latest efforts have produced the R11A Rapha. This advanced robot is able to sort infected cells and deliver vaccines to uninfected cells. Our robot provides an effective solution to the tasks given to our company by BEST, Inc.
Outbreak | Adjusting to the Threat
What is Outbreak? Infection within the human body begins to spread at the cellular level. Infected cells spread disease to neighboring cells rapidly, which then spread the disease to their neighboring cells, and so on as the infection grows to take over the body. BEST Robotics is experimenting with the use of micro-robotics to isolate infected cells from others and apply localized vaccines to slow or stop the spread. Robots that can operate at this level quickly and efficiently will prove invaluable to the medical world. Micro-robots directed by medical professionals should be capable of sampling, identifying, and separating individual cells to isolate the infected areas, as well as applying the vaccines where needed to immunize groups of cells. Self-directed robots that can operate on their own without direction from a medical professional to collect cell samples for testing are also highly desired.

This year, due to COVID-19, we were not able to do all of the community outreach that we usually do. We are privileged to have people involved in co-op groups and scouting organizations. They were able to go to their groups and spread the word about how wonderful BEST Robotics is!
