A few years back, it was hard to imagine that there could be something which would replace humans and work as efficiently as them. But, with the advancements in technology over time, nothing is no longer impossible. Whatever ideas humans have, can be manifested with help of a magic wand called technology.

Talking about the advancements of technology, one of the most crucial advancements has been the invention of humanoid robots, which are extensively being utilized in different sectors including hospitality, healthcare, education etc.

One of the most important roles of these humanoid robots is in the area of healthcare.

Since, doctors have to handle multiple roles, it becomes difficult for them to manage everything simultaneously. Humanoid robots have taken up the responsibilities of doing some minimal tasks, which allows doctors and the medical staff to focus on more important tasks.

The best example that we can take to understand the importance of human eye robots in the healthcare sector is the recent time of COVID, when it was not possible for doctors to stay in close contact with the patients for a longer time. A group of engineers in India made a robot, which was used in some hospitals to give medicines and food to the patients, so that they were able to get medication and nutrition properly and the doctors and other medical staff also didn’t have to go in close contact to them now and then, ultimately helping in keeping everyone safe.

In abroad, this technology is being more widely used in healthcare sectors for different purposes like cleaning, surgery, delivering medicines to the patients on time etc.

For instance, the scientists have developed a new prototype robot called RIBA with human-type arms, which has been designed to perform heavy physical tasks which generally require human contact. The robot is able to transfer a human from a bed to a wheelchair and back. The caregiver can guide by giving instructions to RIBA with the help of tactile sensors using a newly proposed method called tactile guidance.

The humanoid robots have indeed come as a boon for the health care industry, helping the medical staff in situations of urgency and making things more convenient for them, so that they are not tired of the daily menial jobs and are efficiently able to focus on important cases and situations of emergency.
