Application of the NAO humanoid robot in the treatment of bone marrow-transplanted children (demo)

E. Csala, G. Németh, Cs. Zainkó

This demo presents some acts of a potential application of NAO humanoid robots under special circumstances in a hospital, including results of experiments performed at the Children's Hematology and Stem Cell Transplantation Unit of Szent Laszlo Hospital in Budapest, Hungary. Children in this unit are forced to live in small 2~3 m sterile boxes where NAO can be a good companion to cheer them up and break their usual daily routine with performances and exercise.
