Abstract

This paper proposes a patient robot system for nursing students to practice injection training and describes verifications of the training effects. A prototype of a patient robot has been designed and developed with the functions of letting the students inject to its vein and expressing countenances and emotional behaviors to make the robot system be seen similar to actual human. Challenging how to achieve the objective of providing the student trainees with the feeling as if they are nursing actual human, we propose to utilize chaotic transitions generated by non-linear dynamics to avoid repeating actions. The motion of the patient robot is generated according to the internal state, which represents trainee's nursing behaviors recognized through the robot's eye-camera and chaos mimicking human's time-varying emotional transitions. The effects to the injection trainings of the patient robot have been evaluated by vital sign such as students' heart beating rate and questionnaire after practical injection trainings.
