CNS): The Cayman Islands Seafarers Association has donated a state-of-the-art remote medical robot to the Cayman Islands Hospital that will enable local caregivers to get immediate access to medical specialists in the United States in medical emergencies and for consultation on various health issues. The robot means that patients and families will no longer have to make costly trips overseas for medical consultation, saving them and the government money.  A demonstration of the robot was given at the hospital last week showing how medical professionals will use the technology.

‘Sally’ is a remote presence robot which will extend local physicians’ and their patients’ access to care well beyond the Cayman Islands’ borders, giving direct access to consultants and specialists anywhere they are. The technology and connections allow doctors and health technicians here to zoom and move the camera system for the optimum viewing of patients by remote doctors, enabling them to help with diagnosis and care
