RIBA-II Health Care Robot

RIKEN has developed a new version of the RIBA healthcare robot, RIBA-II. The bear-like robot can now bend down and lift patients up to 176 pounds off the floor as well as beds and wheelchairs. New sensors can determine the patient’s weight and signals the robot to adjust accordingly to allow for more comfort.
