Medical Robot Helps Teach Aspiring Dentists

A robot named Simroid allows dental students to interact with a realistic, robotic patient. Simroid can sense pain, listen to the student, and even talk back to the student, making it a very realistic robot.
Similar medical robots have been used in other areas of medicine, like the robot that gives birth. Medical robots are becoming and important part of training aspiring doctors and nurses with the skills and practice they need to handle real patients.
