Tianche No. 5 can provide individual consultations, evaluate their psychological state and remind them to do urine test. Additionally, it automatically prints a report on results after talking to a patient.
Local government plans to use more robots in community rehabilitation centres. It is believed that these robots are suitable for rehabilitation centres because the patients feel uncomfortable when interacting with community workers.
