This is the EksoNR that’s designed to help patients stand and walk during rehabilitation. Developed by Ekso Bionics, the EskoNR works with clinicians to establish accurate movement patterns during every stage of recovery. It also challenges patients as they progress toward walking independently.
Meet Affetto, a life-like child robot that can detect changes in pressure via its synthetic skin, allowing it to ‘feel and express’ pain. A team of researchers at Osaka University in Japan have developed this eerily-realistic bot in the hopes that it will help robots understand and empathize with humans.
The Royal Palace restaurant in the Dutch beachside town of Renesse in the Netherlands has “hired” robots to serve as waiters and to safely cater to patrons in a post-pandemic era. Pre-COVID-19, owner Hu Shaosong invested in two white-and-red robots that will be serving Chinese and Indonesian specialties.
Meet ClicBot created by KEYi Tech, the cutest educational robot that can dance, play, draw, race, climb walls, and play games, in addition to over 200 different interactions – plus, it can teach your child how to code. Made up of 50 smart building blocks, ClickBot can be customized in over 1,000 different ways.
This is the SEIT, an autonomous robot by Milvus Robotics that safely and efficiently carries over 1,000lbs. of products and materials around warehouses, facilities, and factories. Designed to be loaded with goods, or to pull a cart full load of goods, the SEIT reduces operational costs to your transportation department – plus, it saves employees from unnecessary back pain and/or injury.
The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has built the prototype of what it claims to be the world’s first assistive child exoskeleton designed to improve the movement of children born with the rare, degenerative illness, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). SMA reportedly affects 1 in 10,000 babies born in Spain.
This is the REV-1 by Refraction AI, a delivery robot that picks up goods from restaurants, pharmacies, and grocery stores and delivers them directly to your home. It provides a “faster, cheaper, and safer delivery,” which is especially helpful for more at-risk populations, such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions during the Coronavirus pandemic.
This is the Guardian XO by Utah-based robotics company Sarcos. It’s “a full-body exoskeleton and a battery-powered industrial robot that merges human intelligence, instinct, and judgment with the power, endurance, and precision of machines.” Plus, it makes the job easier by allowing a human to safely lift heavy weights.
This is the iYU Pro by Capsix Robotics, a revolutionary robotic system of muscular relaxation to promote well-being and awareness of tension and back pain in the workplace. An employee can alleviate tension, stress, and/or a backache or bad posture and choose the type of massage, the musical ambience, and adjust the pressure at any moment.
The genius robotic engineers of Rex Bionics, based in Auckland, New Zealand, have developed the life-changing Rex Robot. It’s a high-tech, hands-free robotic device for rehabilitation for patients with mobility impairments, including those with spinal cord injuries, stroke or other traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and cerebral palsy.
