The Vgo two-wheeled robotic telepresence systems allows for post-operation checkups to occur in the comfort of one’s own home. The robot is equipped with cameras, audio, and a screen for video communication capabilities. Patients can communicate with physicians and nurses in the hospital and even take close-up photos of surgical areas. In the future, the Vgo system may be sent home regularly with patients to facilitate communication with healthcare professionals.
