Robot Avatar for Telepresence.
Useful to connect patients in isolation with their relatives and/or doctors/healthcare professionals, via video call. The robot is remotely operated by a volunteer who controls its movements and connection. Patient privacy is fully respected.
The staff does need to approach the patient to hand the tablet. The robot can be easily sanitised, so to reduce contagion risk.
