17 May 2016 - Press conference: presentation of the “TELEPRESENCE ROBOT” project

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, along with Casa di Cura San Raffaele of Sulmona, will present the “Telepresence Robot” project on 17 May 2016, during a press conference to be held at the Ministry's headquarters. This project will enable hospitalised people undergoing rehabilitation to continue working as if they were at their office.

The rehabilitation path exemplified by the project stemmed from the co-operation between the Gruppo San Raffaele, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation (Ministero degli Affari Esteri e Cooperazione Internazionale - MAECI), University of L'Aquila, Tokyo Shibaura Institute of Technology and Tokyo National Rehabilitation Centre for Persons with disabilities (NRCD).
