Who are we?      

Close your eyes and imagine a world where robots can interactively assist health care practitioners with caring for older citizens by carrying out simpler, repetitive or physically demanding tasks?  A world where health care support workers have more time to do the more skilled tasks, which require the human touch?  

We can.

This is a dream that Healthbots, a unique joint research project between UniServices and The University of Auckland with the Electronic and Telecommunications Research Institute of Korea (ETRI), is currently investigating,

 We are using today's technology for tomorrow's world.

See a short video of the Healthbots concept.
