iRobot's move into healthcare

Postby Markus Waibel on 06 Nov 2009, 09:45

Boston company iRobot has announced the creation of a new healthcare robots unit.

Unlike in Japan and Korea, which have both made huge investments into robots that care for senior citizens, until now this field has attracted very little attention in the US. For now iRobot's ambitions and potential to compete with Asian robotics companies are unclear, but with a declared goal of adding "one million hours of independent living" to the US' senior citizens, it seems that we all have something to look forward to.

Check out the iRobot Press Release for details.
