Interactive robot added to medical staff at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- An interactive robot has been added to the medical staff at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

NAO has been programmed to do all things fun.

It can dance and play bingo, and it also be utilized for patient healthcare education.

NOA will also be used to help educate patients.

Robots have proven beneficial to bridge the gap for patients who may respond better to alternative modes of learning and interaction.

NAO came to CHOP through a generous gift by the Kids-N-Hope Foundation.
