Telepresence robots – used today by children’s hospitals, various healthcare providers and individuals alike – can provide virtual mobility by allowing your child to go somewhere and move with freedom when he or she may not be able to physically be there, 100% in person.
Empowered Mobility Through a Virtual Presence
Telemedicine models for healthcare have been growing in recent years. These programs allow specialists to perform consultations between hospitals and remote areas or populations. Telemedicine is especially useful for complex and homebound patients, wherever they live. Robotic telepresence appliances take telemedicine to a higher and more personal level. These combine audio “hearing” and visual screens, which actually represent a person's face, with traditional telemedicine. Robotic telepresence devices are remote controlled and enable a person to represent themselves in a distant location, giving them the freedom to move around as if they were actually there.
