Western Instruments

Western Instruments is a company whose mission is to improve the experience of patients in waiting rooms. After performing over 100 interviews we became determined to increase the hygiene of different surfaces found in waiting rooms, specifically seats. It is for this reason we designed Inspectrum, an autonomous robot that has the ability to detect bacteria by emitting a light and interpreting the reflective wavelengths of the bacteria. When the device interprets the location of the bacteria, it will eject an organic antiseptic solution to sanitize the affected area. With this device we hope to create a safer environment in waiting rooms.
