By developing an affordable mobile service robot for therapeutic activities in a health
center environment, this project addresses the issue of both the high cost and man-power
required to provide rehabilitation for stroke survivors and other patients. Our goal is to
measure users - clinician and patient - responses to a telepresence robot, VGo, that has been
modified with a humanoid torso robot, NAO, to facilitate remote communication between the
patient and clinician, and to complete supervisory exercise coaching.
