Experience with the Children-Humanoid Interaction in Rehabilitation Therapy for Spinal Disorders (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:

We present our experience of using the Nao humanoid robotic platform in a role of a physiotherapist for rehabilitation and prevention of scoliosis in a children's hospital and an elementary school in Slovakia. Before and between the exercise units, children could freely interact with a robot, what contributed to building-up robot-children relationship. The results indicate the potential of humanoids to enhance the quality of life of children in an entertaining and effective way.
