Robots and Physical Therapists

Robo Rehab

From the article:This article does not engender any love for insurance companies, does it? "But if patients can function - even one-handed - their insurance firms may tell them that their rehabilitation is done" is not a happy sentence.

But the point is that robots are better than human therapists in many cases today, and apparently insurance companies are happy to pay for the robots, so the robots will win. Most human physical therapists will eventually be out of work as the robots get better and better. See Robotic Nation for details. See also this post.
