Robin the Robot is an Autonomous Care Assistant that augments front-line clinicians across a multitude of settings by supporting caregiving functions and extending care services using emotional AI and autonomous technology advances. Robin has integrated functionalities to provide emotional support and virtual care. Robin the Robot is a technology intended to provide patients and staff members with a warm and human-life interactive experience.
Robin’s current technology is able to provide social support/telepresence and patient monitoring. The proceeds from our financing will be used to advance Robin’s technology for pediatric patients.
