Helping Hands: Robot Style

Humans are busy. They get distracted, they get tired, and as we’re all well aware these days, they get sick.

Robots don’t.

Hospitals are waking up to the fact that robotic immunity to this delightful little virus can save wear and tear on humans. In Tokyo, Covid patients whose symptoms are too mild for hospitalization are greeted in hotels by Pepper, a mask-wearing, big-eyed robot. “Let’s get through this together.”

Pepper does his best to lighten the load on medical staff, and at the Circolo hospital in Varese, Italy, so does Tommy.

Tommy, on guard by an ICU patient’s bedside, can monitor blood pressure and oxygen saturation. He and his fellow robot nurses, reduce the health risk to human doctors and nurses, by reducing the amount of direct contact with Covid-19 patients.

Also, Tommy and his high-tech companions, don’t need to sleep. A change of battery and they’re good to go.

      1. Or at least they can’t muster an “You’re such an idiot why must I suffer through Your prattle?” expression. 🤣Did You ever watch the tv show ‘Red Dwarf’? It was absolutely hilarious. They were trying to train their robots to be doctors….it was pretty funny. They were clumsy and rebellious and not very gentle at all! Perhaps that’s ruined me and placed terror in me for such situations. Thanks for the laugh, Aimer! Cheers!!! ❤️
