Robo-Nurse to Give Gentle Bed Baths

Cody, a concept robot from Georgia Tech, may someday replace nurses in performing bed baths for patients. The robot uses lasers to detect body parts that need to be cleaned and will then proceed to wipe the selected areas using “relatively low force”. The video shows the human-scale robot with a compliant arm performing wiping motions that are involved in bed baths.
