Utilizing Tele-Presence to Improve the Pediatric In-Patient Experience
We enable pediatric patients to visit and explore museums and aquariums from their hospital rooms through telepresence robotics.
Ultimately, we aim to alleviate the anxiety and isolation associated with pediatric inpatient hospitalizations.
How It Works
Patient is introduced to activity by child life specialist and volunteer
Patient learns how to drive robot
Patient controls robot for a 30 minute guided tour
RAE is our robot that lives at the National Aquarium. Through RAE, pediatric patients see, hear, talk and move as if they are physically at the National Aquarium.
