  • Can remote control robots speed up patient diagnosis?

    This robot doctor is doing the rounds as part of a trial at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington.

    The doctor's face appears on this screen as the robot - dubbed Sister Mary - does her rounds. The webcam sends back images that the doctor can see at his control station.

  • The robot being used in the trial weighs around 215lb and is controlled via wi-fi. The idea is that a doctor can use the device to remotely hold consultations with patients.
