The telepresence robot market is growing constantly due to increasing use in telemedicine and remote work. Driving this expansion are the increasing demand for remote interactions and communications, and the operational efficacy these devices have proven to provide.
Utilizing telemedicine will mean that patients can communicate with top specialists that they wouldn’t have otherwise come across. For those that live in rural areas, they can now reap the same benefits that someone would who lives in the center of the city. The convenience would stop travel and allows them to see the top doctor for a diagnosis.
In fact, one huge benefit that doctors are already seeing by conducting video conferencing is that their patients are a lot more open. They will ask honest questions more so than they would in the surgery face to face with their doctor. This open honesty allows doctors to fully understand the patient’s condition and puts them in a much better position to solve it.
Modern telepresence robots like the SIFROBOT-4.2 do more than deliver a patient’s diagnostic information in the hands of an offsite doctor; they create a virtual presence that allows physician and patient alike to have an experience startlingly close to the real thing. With sophisticated controls, advanced imaging, and small, quiet DC motors from, SIFROBOT-4.2 brings high quality medical care to the farthest reaches of the globe.
It is worth mentioning that the telepresence robot’s sensors, from laser range finders to sonar, provide 3D mapping of the facility with obstacle-avoidance capabilities. Doctors do not have to worry about collison and bumping while using the robot as it will automatically handle tricky situations and environments. Also, aultiple I/O channels enable two-way communication among doctor, patient, and staffers, while making it easy to interface with diagnostic equipment. Control can take place remotely via iOS or Android devices.
