Robotic Nurse Assistant to Help with Routine Tasks

Nurses put robot prototype through the paces, helping engineers improve design. With support from NSF, roboticist Dan Popa and a team of engineers and nurses at the University of Louisville are developing a new generation of assistive robots designed to help nurses care for patients in the hospital. The idea is to give nurses more time to focus on the critical thinking aspects of patient care.
