Design and development of a Robo Medical Assistant

This project aimed at developing an auxiliary medical solution that could provide a wide range of non-invasive diagnoses carried out by an automated robot whose motion can also be controlled manually using either a mobile application or voice command. It also incorporates modern features of video conferences and automated patient data management systems using the Internet of Things (IoT) which eventually facilitates medical practitioners doing real investigations but from a distance.

The results of the clinical trial among 6 persons indicated that the robot could measure different health parameters properly using the proposed non-invasive method. The non-invasive results are verified by standard testing equipment and conventional clinical investigation and are also presented in this paper. The developed medical robot, having a wide range of functionality, could play a significant role in reducing human workload and ensuring timely medical assistance during a challenging crisis pandemic period like COVID-19.
