EMMA Massage Robot with Assoc Prof Linda Zhang

Singapore robotics firm AiTreat will be embarking on a new product evaluation in the United States for their massage robot powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Mayo Clinic, USA.

At the same time, a randomised controlled trial (RCT) comparing the efficacy of the massage robot with existing therapies such as manual Tuina – a massage used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) – in managing chronic low back pain is also being planned in Singapore.

The RCT will be jointly led by the Biomedical Sciences and Chinese Medicine programme at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and Singapore General Hospital (SGH).
