Zora robot welcomes the visitor  

Zora is the new companion in residential care facilities. Zora weighs only 5,7kg and stands just over 57cm (22 inch) but the humanoid robot arouses more than curiosity whenever Zora takes the floor or moves just a single finger.  

Controlled via a tablet by health professionals, Zora can lead a physical therapy class, read out TV programmes, weather forecasts or local news.

“A lot of elderly people are actually feeling alone. Solitude is something that is horrible for a lot of elderly people. People don’t have all the time to visit their families and they can find some kind of relationship with the robot and that is a nice thing to do”, explains Fabrice Goffin, one of Zora’s creators, reports Robotics Tomorrow.  

The robot is equipped with cameras, loudspeakers and some microphones and is designed to perform human-like gestures.  

Zora is already deployed with the elderly in residential care centers, in schools where she also helps young autistic children and in different hospitals.  

She also can be used in other service like Pediatrics, Neurology, Pediatric rehabilitation, emergency, etc.
