Robotics and Their Growing Influence in Mental Health
In recent years, there has been an increasing use of robotics in health care. From DaVinci for surgery to robots like RP-Vita which allows remote doctor-to-patient consults, ensuring that the physician is in the right place along with immediate access to the necessary clinical information to take action. There are now hospitals and health centers with robots running around delivering medications, blood samples, meals, and linens. Robots now fill prescriptions at dispensaries and pharmacies and continually take on tasks that were once done by humans. It is obvious that the future of robotics and health-care are intertwined in a way and that will only increase with time.
