Doctors Robotic Telepresence
This Nov. 14, 2012 photo, shows the microphone, top, and two lenses, right, of the RODA (Robotic Office Diagnostic Assistant) telemedicine robot, operated by Dr. Kevin Sherer in Bend Ore., during a demonstration of the technology at St. Charles in Redmond, Ore. RODA 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.
