There was a time telemedicine meant holding a heartrate monitor up to the phone receiver to play an audible signal. Modern telepresence robots like the RPVita from InTouch Health do more than put a patient’s diagnostic information in the hands of an offsite doctor, they create a virtual presence that allows physician and patient alike to have an experience startlingly close to the real thing (see figure 1). With sophisticated controls, advanced imaging, and small, quiet FAULHABER DC motors from MICROMO, InTouch brings top-flight medical care to the farthest reaches of the globe.
