Digital Telework for Remote Physical Work

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Equipment & Technology Innovations, Healthcare Delivery & Policy

Physical interactions in labour intensive environments, such as healthcare, contribute to the spread of COVID-19 amongst healthcare workers and vulnerable populations. This project aims to expand beyond the existing use of video and audio technologies for the virtual work environment and test the use of robots in long-term care and clinic settings using 4G/5G networks and digital medical tools such as digital stethoscopes and biometric monitoring to improve patient care, patient outcomes, and the work environment for healthcare teams.
