DESCRIPTION

MyBESHIE enables a person who is physically present in one location to mimic some of the aspects of being present at another physically remote location. Interactive telepresence systems have promise in the field of medicine, since they could enable a medical specialist to treat patients in a variety of physical locations, without risking the patient’s health, or wasting the specialist’s valuable time, with the delays associated with travel between locations.

MyBESHIE Robot is one of the efforts under the Surgical Innovation and Biotechnology Laboratory (SIBOL), a program that involves collaboration with engineers and scientists from UP Diliman.
