Abstract

In this paper, we present a system of patient robot developed with the aim at improving abilities of nursing student's medical treatment, such as injection to vein. We propose to realize variable emotion of patient robot by using chaos orbit of non-linear time-differentiation equation. To evaluate the effectiveness of the robot through actual injection training, we measure heartbeat rate of nurse student during the injection training, proving the effects of the robot's similarity to human. To make the patient robot to be self-contained for the training, we propose a 3-D injector pose recognition method of patient robot to help that the robot behave autonomously along with the injection procedures of the nurse students trainings.
