MATLDA is an intelligent, person-centred, multilingual social robot with human-like features designed for providing holistic care services; for example, emotional wellbeing, multilingual translation and vital signs.
Available in physical, virtual (telehealth) and mixed-reality forms, the robot communicates with its human partners via face, gestures, voice commands, smartphone, touch panel, SMS messages or email. It is an Australian innovation and an outcome of 10 years of research in aged care, disability support, education and robot process automation sectors respectively.
As a proactive device, MATLDA has been evidenced through home-based and residential care deployments to possess an advantage over e-health monitoring and screen-based systems as its ‘human qualities’ elicit higher levels of patients’ emotional, visual and behavioural engagement. Even patients with limited knowledge of technology and those with mental or physical impairments can interact with the device.
The robot operates offline (complete data privacy) as well as online and can help with the following: provide emotional wellbeing, monitoring, reminders, remote patient management in hospital settings and at home including smart home services for at high-risk seniors. The device can also help reduce premature escalation of care arrangements for seniors because of lack of support systems at home.
Other features and benefits include: medication monitoring and communication of patient conditions and needs to medical staff on their smartphone to reduce and avoid preventable hospital stays; augmented intelligence through life-style analytics, cloud-based patient service management, posture tracking, fall detection, anti-wandering services; social connectivity to help with patient recovery and provide respite to carer and medical staff; integrating lifestyle big data with clinical management systems for better treatment and diagnosis of various chronic disease and mental health conditions; administrative and workflow automation functions.
