They put a similar thing into one of the area ICU's (I think) in the Milwaukee area.  While it wasn't anywhere close to being as advanced as the system described here, I thought it was a good start.  The primary advantage is that the more experienced doctor could keep an eye on patients in other locations rather than having to transfer everybody to the "mother ship".

Several robots for providing at-home medical care are in the works, based on a somewhat similar design platform as this one. That platform is iRobot's Ava mobile robot design: http://www.irobot.com/ava/

Perfection is a laudable, but ultimately unattainable, goal, even for the world's most successful consumer electronics company. You know the hits; here are Apple's all-time greatest misses.
Siemens' new version of Imagine Lab was designed to help the automotive and aerospace industries meet environmental mandates.
Belden and Secomea have developed a remote access system that gives users a plug-and-play connection to plant assets.
Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
