AITX’s RAD Receives RIO Expansion Order from Top 25 Healthcare Provider

Detroit, Michigan, July 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), a subsidiary of Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), is pleased to announce that it has secured an expansion order from a prominent healthcare provider ranked in the top 25 nationwide. This order builds on the initial deployment of RAD’s RIO 360 solar-powered security towers earlier this year.

The specifics of the new order, including the number of units and financial details, remain confidential. However, this significant follow-up order underscores the growing trust and reliance on RAD’s cutting-edge security solutions by leading healthcare organizations.

“The healthcare industry’s ongoing investment in RAD’s technology is a testament to the value we bring in enhancing security and safety,” said Mark Folmer, CPP, PSP, FSyI, President of RAD. “This expansion order further validates our commitment to driving technological advancements that make a meaningful difference. We are excited to strengthen our presence in the healthcare market.”

The Company also noted that the client intends to deploy RAD Light My Way as part of their ongoing expansion. RAD Light My Way is an integrated mobile app and hardware solution designed to enhance user safety and security. This innovative system empowers users by providing instant access to emergency services, real-time threat detection, and the ability to summon assistance through nearby RAD devices. This addition aims to significantly boost the overall security infrastructure, ensuring that healthcare workers feel safe and protected, especially when moving to and from parking areas.

According to the American Hospital Association, there are 6,120 hospitals in the United States as of 20241. Concerns about safety among hospital workers, especially when alone in parking lots, are significant. A recent report highlighted that healthcare workers frequently face threats and violence, with incidents in parking areas being common.2 Hospitals are responding by enhancing security measures, including increased surveillance technology to protect staff when walking to and from their cars.3
