A life-like baby robot could help save lives.
FOX’s Alex Hein reports in this ‘Housecall for Health’:
This is Housecall for Health.
Sounds real doesn’t it? The heart beat, spit up and blinking that comes with it does too, but the sounds are actually coming from Super Tory, a highly sophisticated robot meant to train doctors, nurses and EMT’s on how to save the lives of real newborns.
Super Tory is being hailed as the world’s most advanced neonatal patient simulator and is the first that can go into cardiac arrest and be revived with real time chest compression’s and a ventilator.
The robots skin can even change color when a button triggers respiratory distress. Doctors at Atlanta Children’s Hospital and two others are working with the robot to study an array of symptoms including different cries, frowns and skin tones.
The robot is meant to give medical staff hands on experience when dealing with tiny patients who often can’t express what’s bothering them. It offers the opportunity to make a mistake without fatal consequences so that they’re ready for human patients.
