The robot, called the RP-VITA™, was developed in partnership with InTouch Health, a leader in acute care remote presence telemedicine; and iRobot, a leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions and the company that created the Roomba vacuum cleaner.
The five foot tall cylinder-shaped device has a flat-screen computer monitor “face” on which patients and family members can see and interact with the physician in real time. A zoom-lens camera and microphone on top of the screen enables the physicians to see and hear patients during examinations, communicate with family, communicate with nursing and review vital signs in the patient care environment. The RP-VITA is controlled by a physician using an iPad, enabling quick and easy navigation to anywhere it needs to go even in a busy ICU. The RP-VITA is equipped with an autonomous robotic navigation system that provides the robot with the ability to “see” people and objects and avoid bumping into them, as well as the ability to create a digital map of the care environment.
