Chinese physicians and physiotherapists will soon be able to have their very own robot assistant to help them with their therapy.

The robot will not only consistently deliver high quality therapy but will also help to reduce the shortage of trained therapists in Singapore, said its 32-year-old creator Albert Zhang.

Emma, short for Expert Manipulative Massage Automation, was unveiled on Monday (July 18) by year-old technology start-up AiTreat.

“We have designed Emma as a clinically precise tool that can automatically carry out treatment for patients as prescribed by a physiotherapist or Chinese physician,” said Mr Zhang.”Our aim is not to replace the therapists who are skilled in sports massage and acupoint therapy, but to improve productivity by enabling one therapist to treat multiple patients with the help of our robots.”
