Interactive technology for medical assistance in medicine and care

© Bielefeld University

High-tech assistance systems can be experienced in the "Interactive Assistance in Medicine and Care" showroom of WG 2 and WG 16 of the Faculty of Medicine. In addition to commercial products, current research prototypes are also presented in changing exhibitions.

The aim of the showroom is to familiarise visitors with a wide range of different technical support systems, enable them to try them out and thus break down barriers.

There will be changing exhibits on the areas of "prevention", "everyday assistance", "rehabilitation and therapy". We also provide insights into the explainability of decision support systems and the development of prototypes using co-design.

Dates for viewing on request:

Research prototypes

Face of Flobi
Bielefeld University

Insights into the development history and current research with CITEC's anthropomorphic robot head will be given.

Floka simulation on screen

Floka serves as an interface to ChatGPT. In addition, insights into the internal processing are given and an interface for controlling (virtual) robots is shown.

Flobi simulation in interaction with a child
Bielefeld University

The virtual assistant Flobi for the therapy of children with ADHD. In human-human interaction, it has been shown that an intensive, effective behavioural therapy training programme for children and adolescents with ADHD (the Summer Camp) has a lasting effect. The main feature of the training programme is an intensive response cost intervention (RCI).

Nao does tutorials (in connection with lecture/seminar) with a human
Bielefeld University

The NAO robot demonstrates tutorials (in connection with lecture/seminar) and motivates people to join in.
It is designed to help children and young people with depression to move more, mobilise children with trauma and support them in physiotherapy.

Pepper the robot tells children a story
Bielefeld University

There will be insights into the co-design of a support for the
evening routine
in paediatric and adolescent psychiatry, in which Pepper tells stories. The project follows an agile participatory development approach in which clinical staff, patients and developers jointly design the behaviour of robots

An assistance system helps you to learn how to solve the first
rows of a Rubik's cube yourself.

VR training simulations (blood sampling and preparation of infusions) as part of medical and healthcare training.

Commercial systems

The symptom checker app can be used to make self-diagnoses and prepare for medical consultations

The robot in the shape of a baby harp seal is used in geriatric care
, mainly in therapy for people suffering from dementia

The smart therapy system supports the treatment of neurological diseases by promoting cognition and motor skills.

The home care robot with Medisana connection can navigate autonomously and serves as an interface to doctors and carers.

The voice assistant can be used to control smart home components, such as the intelligent lamps from Phillips.
