Telepresence has already transformed the way we interact with people remotely, allowing us to be transported to locations all over the world. The power of being able to video call family and friends and have conferences with colleagues from all over the world has always thought to be the most important use for this technology, however it is starting to have a huge impact on the healthcare industry. Telepresence will allow doctors to talk to patients remotely and even allow consultants to give advice during surgeries. The development of telepresence robots could even mean surgeries are performed remotely. This sort of technology will be particularly useful for people in remote locations, for example for injured soldiers who are in isolated locations.
