VGo Telepresence Robot for Education

VGo empowers hospitalized or homebound students to remotely attend school using their VGo as their physical presence.

VGo Goes Where Students Can’t

  • VGo helps students access a traditional school environment
  • Students actively participate in their school day with 100% remote controlled VGo
  • Economical alternative to assistive tools, aids and specialized busing

Educators Trust VGo to Get Medically Fragile Students Back to School


VGo Represents Medical Staff for Remote Patient Monitoring

  • Providers can consult with clinicians and specialists without need for travel or risk of infection
  • Healthcare professionals can easily communicate with and monitor patients from a distance by driving the VGo to patient bedsides
  • VGo helps minimize staff exposure to COVID-19 and reduces the quantity of PPE required for frequent patient visits

VGo Empowers Family Members to be Active Care Participants

  • Family can be present for care consultations regardless of location
  • VGo increases social communication with patient family and friends, leading to shorter stays and happier patients

VGo Staff Augmentation Increases Productivity

  • Instantly be anywhere within a facility at the click of a button
  • Interact with patients, clinicians, or others instead of physically needing to move locations
  • Staff can work from anywhere –a socially distanced location within the care facility or from their home officeG

“For a patient with enhanced respiratory isolation, VGo went in by herself and conducted a full interview and exam. PPE was saved and exposure reduced to zero”

How it Works

VGoʼs unique capability is its remote-controlled mobility combined with two-way video and audio communications.

The solution comprises two primary elements:

  • The VGo – The remote-controlled mobile device that represents the student or teacher in a distant location.
  • The VGo App – The software application runs on the studentʼs or teacherʼs computer and is used to initiate connectivity, see and hear what is happening at the other end, and drive the VGo.
