Roomba maker spends $6M on health care robots
February 1, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
"Less techie doctors will benefit from the ability to do remote diagnoses," iRobot CEO Colin Angle told the Herald today. "The dream is to allow a specialist a global reach through the use of an FDA-cleared, high-performance robot with enough intelligence and ability to deliver a diagnosis."
Angle described the robot, which has not been revealed, as a "thermonuclear version" of its Ava product, a mobile robot that can use a commercial tablet computer like an iPad for a "head."
The health care version would not use a commercial tablet, but instead an InTouch-developed display that could deliver high-enough resolution video and audio to allow for medical diagnosis.
