Automated Dispensing/Pharmacy Robotics - an innovative way to reduce cost and enhance patient care and medication compliance.  

At Helix Health we understand that pharmacies are as individual as the people who run them. Each stage of automation must therefore be precisely tailored to these individual circumstances.  We supply a range of automated dispensing machines to ensure we can meet the requirements of any size pharmacy from retail to hospital and nursing homes.  We pride ourselves as experts in the area, having installed more robotic solutions in Ireland than any other provider. Our robotic specialists are also fully certified and have completed comprehensive training courses provided by our partners in Japan & Germany.

In November 2007 Helix Health announced an exclusive distribution agreement and strategic alliance with the German company, Willach, the European market leader in the field of pharmacy storage systems and pharmacy robotics.

Helix Health is also an official distributor for the Tosho range of automatic dispensing machines and tablet packers. Tosho Inc. is the Japanese leader in pharmacy robotics and automated dispensing machines.

In February 2010, we broadened our range even further by partnering with Global Factories. For the pharmaceutical industry Global Factories develops detection machines which identify the medication packed in the pouches, and several other peripheral products that serve the efficiency of the process.
