iRobot is taking its Ava robot platform and bringing it into the healthcare space, partnering with InTouch to announce the RP-VITA, which as you'd expect is a clever acronym: "Remote Presence Virtual + Independent Telemedicine Assistant." Since the RP-VITA utilizes the same mobility platform that we've seen on the Ava, it's able to traverse the halls of a hospital without crashing into walls or people. As a telepresence robot, it's designed to allow doctors to check in on patients remotely. It therefore provides access to some diagnostic devices like ultrasound machines, and it also has an electronic stethoscope built-in. Finally, InTouch Health's "Telemedicine" system allows for access to patient records.
