How VGo Works

The VGo app

The software application runs on the user’s computer and is used to initiate connectivity, see and hear what is happening at the other location and to drive the VGo. The VGo app is available in the Apple app store and on Google Play.

VGoNet

VGo runs over the internet with the help of VGoNet, a unique cloud computing network designed to handle the complexities of a solution that requires real time AV communications and simultaneous robotic remote controls.

Audio and Video

Mute audio or audio and video, control the volume of your voice coming out of VGo or have the VGo speak for you with text to speak capabilities. Take hi-resolution photos & zoom video up to 5x.

Driving VGo

Users simply use their mouse pointer and VGo moves in that direction. Drag it more and the VGo moves faster. You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard. Tilt the camera using the scroll wheel on the mouse or use your keyboard

Remote Patient Visits, Monitoring and Staff Augmentation 

VGo addresses the challenges of resource availability and cost containment. VGo enables staff to be available where they need to be. VGo reduces costs by increasing productivity. Staff can travel across distances instantly – to the patient wing, to the lab, to the clinic, to the eldercare facility, to the home –at the click of a button. Remote patient monitoring with VGo helps reduce staff exposure to infectious diseases such as COVID-19 and reduces the quantity of PPE required for frequent patient visits. Healthcare professionals can easily communicate with and monitor patients from a distance by driving the VGo to patient bedsides. VGo also facilitates instant interactions to connect with patient’s family, friends, clinicians, or others without the need to be physically present.

Education

Physical Presence for Homebound Students 

VGo is successfully deployed in hundreds of schools for students who cannot physically go to school due to an illness, accident, or medical condition. VGo gets students back to a traditional schooling environment by providing a physical device that replicates the student while away from hospital. Students are empowered to operate their user friendly VGo in real-time. VGo enables students to receive the same instruction as their peers and move around and between classrooms independently. Students actively participate in a full school day with their classmates – both in the classroom and through socializing in the hallways and at lunch.

“There was an old Cris, the boy that existed before the seizures hit… they changed his health and his personality. He’s still a happy-go-lucky kid, but because he had no peer interaction, he became subdued. When VGo came into his life, some of that spark came back. Some of his personality is back. It’s an enthusiasm I haven’t seen in a long time.”

Terry Colaluca

Speaking about her son, who uses VGo to attend school, despite Spina Bifida, seizures and other health conditions., Hear from more parent, student, and teacher 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

“The VGo offers our team members the ability to join a meeting or conference in real time from a remote location, greatly enhancing our global collaboration experience.  It has certainly made it easier for me to feel like I’m more engaged with the group at large while telecommuting, especially during those times when my physical trips are infrequent.”
