Related lab member(s): and | Tags: , , , ,

Young children often feel terribly anxious while visiting a doctor. We designed mediRobbi, an interactive robotic companion, to help them feel more relaxed and comfortable during hospital visits. mediRobbi can guide and accompany the children through their medical procedures. The ultimate goal of this study is to transform an intimidating medical situation into a joyful exploring game.
