Cheery Robot Helps Kids Cope With Pain During Hospital Procedures

A delightful-looking robot called “MEDi,” or Medicine and Engineering Designing Intelligence, is being used to help make doctor’s visits less painful – literally.

The Alberta Children’s Hospital in Canada purchased four of the MEDi robots earlier this year, CTV News reported. The bionic friends hang out with children in the waiting room and also accompany them during different procedures, according to RxRobots, the group that created MEDi.
