Nobody likes the idea of being in a hospital for a treatment, but try to imagine how it would feel to be a child or an elderly.
Nobody likes the idea of being in a hospital for a treatment, but try to imagine how it would feel to be a child or an elderly. They feel even more dependent than we do. This is often perceived as a very stressful situation.
Stress limits the recovery and/or information-processing after having a procedure with a healthcare professional. Our social robots are the perfect addition to the healthcare professional. They have plenty of time for you, never forget your name or your patient record file and patiently explain you or train you till you feel secure to make the next step in your recovery process.
With humanoid robots, your patients will be helped when and how they want.
Most hospitals are designed, with nice-looking art and furniture to help patients to feel more comfortable. The doctors and nurses have been trained to be compassionate and to take their time to inform and calm down patients. But unfortunately, most health care institutes face understaffing or pressure because of presentation indicators that have to be met.
Often there isn’t time to redo instructions or have a social talk with patients. Besides that patient administration is filling an increasingly big part of your working hours. Suppose you have a robot at your disposal, who helps you with all the dull, repetitive or stupid work. How would that feel? Wouldn’t it offer you more job satisfaction to spend most of your time helping patients again?
We at No1Robotics feel that our social robotics platform can be of great help to help reduce stress levels in patients and help healthcare professionals. Our robots are able to give instructions vocally or by using visual media such as video and presentations. They are able to have a social chat, execute a health check when and where is most convenient for the patient.
The robots can fill a hospitality function as well. By informing patients and guests, running questionnaires. We at No1Robotics absolutely don’t feel that robot can or will replace people. But these robots can help with reducing stress levels and lighten the workload of healthcare professionals. We continue doing research to further reduce stress levels with the use of humanoid robots.
