SLU Boys High alumni donate four robots to aid frontliners
by PNA

The city government received on Monday four units of Logistics Indoor Service Assistant (LISA), a remote-controlled robot that can deliver medicine to patients.

Rey Balanon of Stouthearted Men Foundation Inc., a corporation founded by Saint Louis Boys High Batch 1979, said LISA was designed in the United States but assembled locally. Its base is like a toy car with a metal pole attached to it. At the upper portion of the pole is a small tray where the medicine will be placed.

“It is remote-controlled robot and can be directed by the handler to the patients, preventing direct contact with the patients,” Balanon said.

He said the original experimental units were used at the University of Sto. Tomas Hospital.

Yung isang friend namin ang nagbigay sa UST pero noong nakita noong friend namin na okay siya, effective doon sa preventing nurses from having to enter Covid-19 wards, eh sabi namin siguro magandang magdonate din tayo dito sa Baguio,” Balanon said.

The Foundation asked members to pitch-in for the four units that it donated to the city government.

He said they had also been involved in several outreach activities like scholarship to indigent families, medical missions in far-flung communities, and fund drive for various humanitarian endeavors.

City Administrator Bonifacio dela Peña said they are thinking of placing LISA at the Sto. Jesus isolation facility.

Hindi na kasi dapat sana magkaroon ng physical contact,” dela Peña said.

He said with the robot, the exposure of the nurses will be minimized, reducing the risk of acquiring the disease.
