Using robots in children hospitals. TEDxBarcelona.

Dissemination Activity by Miquel Domènech (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona).

3th May 2016. TEDxBarcelona. Mazda Space (Barcelona).

More and more hospitals around the world are using robots not only to entertain children but also to palliate their feelings of sadness and to gather information about their frame of mind. In Barcelona, since the year 2010, there is a collaboration between the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), the university La Salle Campus Barcelona(URL) and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) where different types of robots are used and where their impact on patients is measured and studied.
