The RP-7 robot resembles a great boot fitted with a screen and a video camera.
It is 5 foot tall (1.52 m) and allows patients and hospital staff to communicate with doctors at anytime.
In addition one can connect it to electronic measuring devices (stethoscopes, otoscopes and ultrasounds) to transmit medical data.
This robot is already working in the Ryder Trauma Center at the Jackson Medical Center of the University of Miami (Florida).
