'Darwin' is the name of a robot therapy tool developed by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology specifically for children and adults who are living with Cerebral Palsy.
Rather than using conventional methods of therapy, Darwin provides words of encouragement and games to lift a patient's spirits and as a result, help them to increase their efforts and desire to succeed in their therapy.
Across the healthcare industry, a number of bots are being introduced to enhance the kind of care that can be given by human medical professionals. A number of these bots are designed to take care of both labor-intensive and mundane tasks that can be outsourced to a robot, thus leaving a medical professional more time to focus their efforts elsewhere.
