Working at

Yuman is an ambitious Copenhagen-based startup addressing one of the major challenges facing healthcare - the shortage of nurses. In June 2022, we have been selected as the TOP robotic startup in Europe. Our goal is to free up nurses from simple, but time-consuming tasks so they can focus on care tasks that require a personal touch. To achieve this, we are developing innovative mobile robots that assist nurses as their own "transport buddies" by automating the delivery of food, medicine and laundry in hospital wards. Our mobile robots make more time and care for patients (TLC), directly improving nurses' conditions, and reducing stress and burnout.
