A Fluffy Robot Will Soon Help to Get Injections

Robots may soon replace humans as our go-to friends, just as most of us never leave home without our cell phones. It certainly seems so based on recent trials by Japanese researchers who created a hand-held soft robot that can enhance patients' experiences during injections. This has taken being tech-savvy to a whole new level.

Meet Releibo, the injection assistant

The scientists created a soft, furry robot called Reliebo that had numerous miniature airbags that could inflate in reaction to the motions of the participant's hand. 

Researchers put the device through a series of tests based on the participant's hand clenching while the unpleasant thermal stimulation was applied. Researchers also assessed cortisol and oxytocin levels.

Regardless of the experimental circumstances employed, the researchers discovered that holding the robot helped patients feel better, and they hypothesized that the robot may have also triggered the emotions of well-being that human touch can produce. This can be useful when an actual human touch is not feasible like during a pandemic.

Future iterations of the robot might employ controlled gaze or even augmented reality (AR) technology to divert patients' attention from their discomfort.

  • Depression & Dementia: Researchers have examined the connections between various depression trajectories, depression therapies, and the chance of getting dementia in a recent study.
  • Insect-eating mushroom: Six different insects were used by researchers to grow cordyceps mushrooms, which produced an extract having antiviral and anticancer effects in a recent experiment.
  • Topicals for vitiligo: A recently approved topical called ruxolitinib (Opzelura) is swiftly changing the game for the millions of people who suffer from vitiligo, a condition that deprives the skin of its natural color.
  • Genes that help with Dyslexia: Because dyslexia is a condition that is known to run in families, some kids find it difficult to read or spell. Now, scientists claim to have identified many genes that are to blame for the condition.
