Rudy Assistive Robot Helps Elderly Age in Place

The Rudy assistive robot from INF Robotics wants to help the elderly, war veterans and people with disabilities age in place. Rudy will cost $5,000 when it hits the market in 2017, but the company hopes to get reimbursement through Medicare and Medicaid so the robot "will be little to no cost to the user."
