Thumbs Up Robots that fetch: Device could help disabled at home

Robots that fetch: Device could help disabled at home

Story Highlights
Engineers at Georgia Tech are developing a health care robot for home use

The robot can open doors and fetch items such as a bottle of pills or a cell phone

Robots could assist patients with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease

Such health care robots may be commercially available in less than 10 years
