Human-like Robot That Simulates Birth

Posted on 19/04/2006 by wcox in Science
ImageI know this is a little late, but nonetheless very interesting: a robotic birth simulator.  Noelle, the simulators name, is a full-sized life-like robot used in birthing training. Gaumard, the company that makes the simulator, sells the whole package for $20,000 USD.

She can be programmed for a variety of complications and for cervix dilation. She can labor for hours and produce a breach baby or unexpectedly give birth in a matter of minutes.

She ultimately delivers a plastic doll that can change colors, from a healthy pink glow to the deadly blue of oxygen deficiency. The baby mannequin is wired to flash vital signs when hooked up to monitors.


What will they think of next?
