Rudy Assistive Robot Helps Elderly Age in Place – Robotics Trends

Meet the Rudy assistive robot from INF Robotics that wants to help the elderly, war veterans and people with disabilities age in place and cut down on recurring hospital visits.

INF Robotics, a startup in Fairfax, Virginia, tells Washington Business Journal the Rudy assistive robot will be available in 2017 in the Greater Washington area. Plans are in the works to roll out Rudy to other parts of the Mid-Atlantic.

The Rudy assistive robot is currently in stage two of its beta testing. It’s being piloted at assistive living facilities and has already been tested with the Department of Veteran Affairs.

It isn’t the sleekest robot, but the benefits the Rudy assistive robot will provide human companions is what really counts. Rudy reminds people to take medications, carries things, interacts socially, and play games with people via its screen.
