Message from the CEO

Bert Garlich
CEO ZiuZ Visual Intelligence

The market for ‘pouch medication’ is growing steadily. More and more pharmacists and patients are discovering its benefits and the availability of technological tools for the safe manufacture of medicine bags has reached a mature level.

New: Reduction of False Negative percentage using Vibromatic

In order to optimize the detection and matching of pills, we are continuously improving the algorithm. However, there will always be situations where the algorithm cannot make a safe decision. The most important point here is that pills overlap each other. This is strongly related to the type of film, the type of packaging robot and the type of medication. A vibration solution can ensure that the individual pills are exposed in the medication bags. Read more…
