Doctors Robotic Telepresence
In this Nov. 14, 2012 photo, volunteer Anita Boucher, left, lies in a hospital bed in Redmond, Ore., while Dr. Kevin Sherer in Bend Ore., listens to her heart with the help of ICU Nurse, Emilie Bonney, and the telemedicine robot RODA (Robotic Office Diagnostic Assistant) during a demonstration. It will be deployed in the intensive care unit at the St. Charles Redmond hospital and give doctors a remote way of examining patients to determine whether they can stay in the facility or whether they should be moved to a bigger hospital in Bend, Portland or Eugene.
