There can be no doubt that robots have entered the medical
care and services space. Different classes of robots are at work doing surgery,
delivering medical supplies around hospitals, dispensing medications, cleansing
hospital rooms and picking up laundry. Some are on the verge of lifting
patients from bed to wheel chair. Soon they will be welcoming you at your medical
check-in and escorting you to your appointed location. The next evolution has
now begun. This next evolution is “humanoid” robots that work as medical
“Humanoid” robots are a next higher class of robot. They are
equipped with human like interaction intelligence such as cognitive-behavior
recognition, facial recognition and emotional response assessment. As such,
they make ideal medical assistants. Know that humanoid robots are already working
in pediatric care and have been clinically proven to reduce a child’s stress
and pain by 50% when facing medical procedures. In dental practices humanoid robots
are calming children as they have their first experiences with dental
In skilled nursing facilities they are doing everything from
informing residents what’s for lunch to playing Bingo to leading exercise
classes. In more specialized environments they are terrific in helping treat Autism.
They increase vaccination rates. I have even seen where they can aid in dementia
therapy. The point is they are here, they are real and they are ready to be on
Their flexibility in adapting to customized medical protocols
makes them extremely versatile.
I have been engaged for more than 45 years in the advances
in technology. My work around humanoid robots has been the most exciting.
Humanoid robots establish an entirely new interface to the world around us –
innovation and imagination reign supreme. Not a day goes by when yet another breakthrough
concept or idea fails to surface.
Besides, can there be anything better that seeing a fearful
child transform into a smiling, excited and happier child? The medical profession
will once again demonstrate their leadership in doing what they are
foundationally committed to doing – increasing the quality of care. A positive experience
by a child with medical care and or dental care can impact a lifetime of their
perspective on health care and health self-management.
Strictly from a business perspective I have seen how humanoid
robots increase business development and enhance patient loyalty. Not insignificant
benefits of using this technology.
