RIBA-II is an electrically powered robotic lifting system designed to reduce injuries in carework. The bear-faced bot safely lifts patients from floor level into bed or onto chairs. His computer and sensors measure the weight and balance of the patient as they are picked up, and RIBA-II calculates the correct positioning of the arms to provide a comfortable lift. Another benefit is the increased dignity offered by such a system, which is very important to patients. Extensive research continues in this exciting area of robot/patient trust and interaction.
