Created as a joint effort between iRobot and InTouch Health as a telemedicine robot, the RP-VITA has one primary goal: to enable off-site doctors to view and tend to their patients remotely. The robot has a rolling base, so it can travel anywhere, and users can drive to a specific location simply by touching that location on the interface. Controlled remotely by a ControlStation app (available for purchase separately), the RP-VITA is compatible with the iPad and iPad mini; however, the robot itself is powered by Windows 7. To interact with patients, remote doctors merely tap on the patient's image, which displays vitals on the screen. The price tag is certainly steep, but that also covers 24/7 technical support.
