Robotic assistance for improving medical care
In collaboration with the Taiwan Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Pilotfish conducted qualitative user research in specialized clinics to discover the needs of mobility-impaired patients and their caregivers in order to develop a radically new medical concept. Our aim was to solve three major issues: the high amount of physical labor required from nurses, the stress incurred by mobility-challenged patients, and the predicted lack of medical personnel in the future.
