Training robots with realistic pain expressions can reduce doctors’ risk of causing pain during physical exams

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

A new approach to producing realistic expressions of pain on robotic patients could help to reduce error and bias during physical examination.

A team led by researchers at Imperial College London has developed a way to generate more accurate expressions of pain on the face of medical training robots during of painful areas.

Findings, published today in Scientific Reports, suggest this could help teach trainee doctors to use clues hidden in patient to minimize the force necessary for physical examinations.
