The robots keep getting better all the time, and this one appears to burp, pass gas, and release all kinds of other body type secretions, well kind of like we do and he’s wireless too, so hey let’s put him on the network. IStan is not alone, he has some relatives over at the company website and he’s not cheap either. We are seeing more and more simulation to day in healthcare, hopefully with good results.
Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in Fountain Valley has a new, electronic member of the staff – iStan, a wireless ” patient simulator” with a a human-like skeletal structure. You may remember him from an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.”
