Telepresence Robot To Join Doctors On Rounds Next Month
March 28, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
The Puppet features a touchscreen LCD display with a camera, microphone and a speaker for two-way communcation. The doctor can control the display, adjusting its direction to see the patient better. And it is mounted on a mobile pedestal so that the doctor can drive it too. The base is equipped with sensors to avoid collisions. Depending on the doctor's needs - and budget - he or she can choose a camera with or without zoom, a 5" or 10" display, and either 3G or 4G wifi connectivity.
Obviously the main hope is that the Puppet reduces doctor's workloads. This is a significant concern in a place like Singapore with only 1.7 doctors per 1,000 patients. To lessen the load, Puppets can be on site at satellite hospitals that doctors normally need to travel to in order to check up on recovering patients that they'd previously treated. The Puppet would also come in handy for an application often emphasized for AVA: assisted home care. A Puppet would be perfect at nursing homes, for example, where patients need minimal but constant care.
