Humanoid robots for patient simulation in medical training

A team of researchers and engineers from Gaumard Scientific have developed a robot that provides a more realistic situation for medical training. The robot, called HAL, looks like a boy and also behaves like a boy. He can follow a finger with his eyes, answer questions, cry for his mother and experience anaphylactic shock.



New level of interaction

The robot is designed to allow trainee doctors and nurses to perform a wide range of tests, including blood pressure measurement, wrist monitoring and respiratory monitoring.  Trainees can also use real medical equipment, such as an ECG machine or a heart or blood pressure monitor - or tools such as a scalpel or breathing tubes - to carry out realistic medical procedures.


Gaumard has a long history of producing medical training equipment. With the HAL robot, the company has set the bar higher than ever before, offering medical students a new level of interaction with a robot patient. When students perform the treatment, the robot can react, cry, for example, or say "au" when it is pricked with a needle. It can also move, not only by showing emotions, but also by imitating the actions often found in the treatment of a person in pain.


Trainers can also speak into a microphone and make their voice from the robot sound like a five year old boy, and they can also make medical emergencies
