Meet Mikoto: a medical simulation robot that allows young doctors and students to practice without putting any patient in danger. Medical venture Tmsuk R&D Inc. & Tottori University Hospital unveiled this robot to give users endotracheal intubation and gastrointestinal endoscopy hands-on training.
Students get a score as they finish their sessions with this robot. Mikoto has a sensor in its throat to detect pressure and respond. The Japan Times has more on the story here.
