In an innovation project for Region Västra Götaland and the central sterile services department of Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Knowit teamed up with robotics company Rebl Industries. The project involved a pre-study to evaluate how deep learning and computer vision might help improve efficiency and quality in the inspection of surgical equipment. The ambition is to enable collaborative robots to help in sterilisation work with gains in efficiency and improved resilience in hospital surgical capacity.

Robotisation has the potential to increase the quality of sterile processing, resulting in the greater availability of instruments through faster processing and less need for antibiotics.
