What We Fund - Equipment

What if it was your child? While most people would prefer not to think about children in life-threatening situations, specialists at the Alberta Children’s Hospital know that being ready for health emergencies, with the right people, right training, and the right equipment – helps them to save lives. Community support enables our specialists to access the best, least invasive and most accurate technology available to ensure that kids in our community receive the very best care.

Meet MediFriendly robots help kids with medical procedures

The Alberta Children’s Hospital is the first in the world to use humanoid robots at the bedside for pediatric care. The two-foot tall robots – named MEDi (Medicine and Engineering Designing Intelligence) – act as pain coaches.

MEDi can also walk, give high fives and even dance with a tap of a button on his head.
