Robot Assistant GARMI

© BR

GARMI is designed to be a humanoid robotic assistant for the elderly. The humanoid is a robotic platform that helps seniors with activities of daily living, such as doing housework. The humanoid can physically assist a patient during rehabilitation exercises and/or even assist the doctor during the first stages of a telemedicine-based doctor visit. By equipping GARMI with measuring devices for example ECG, sphygmomanometer, and ultrasound, combined with the use of IoT-sensors, the doctor has access to relevant health parameters to be able to act rapidly in cases of emergency.

GARMI is also designed to improve communication with family and friends by adding a new haptic channel to audio-visual communication.
