Hear from VGo Users

"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."

– Physician at leading Boston hospital

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.
