The Nao robot served as a mediator between the doctors, nursing staff, and hospitalized children. The socially assistive robot prepared them for the medical examinations and asked them about how they felt, to show where they feel pain, and explained the medical procedures. The children liked the robot, appreciated its role, felt more comfortable during the examinations, and in some cases, they expressed that they felt less pain when the robot was next to them. Doctors and nurses collaborated with the robot and supervised the activity.
