Robot Helps Kids With RehabBy Kontzer, Tony; Information Week,
Publication Date: June 2002
Article discussing the CosmoBot, which uses a web interface to track a child’s gestures and voice during physical therapy. The CosmoBot was designed to serve as a motivator for children who might otherwise resist the rigors of therapy. The robot monitors a child’s movements through sensors worn by the child and via a web-based connection between those sensors and the robot. The supervising therapist or doctor is provided with frequent updates about a child’s condition without requiring office visits. At the time the article was written, Arthrotronix was seeking grants from the National Science Foundation to help it commercialize the CosmoBot.
