The Tele-Robotic Intelligence Nursing Assistant (TRINA) assists nurses working with infectious patients by performing highly repetitive tasks. The project focused on fabricating a new version of the 2017-2018 Telenursing RoboPuppet through the addition of motors and sensors that provide haptic feedback to the user while simultaneously resisting gravity when the user releases the device. The addition of a simulation environment to visualize the forward/inverse kinematics as well as fully functioning hand controls for TRINA allows for a more user friendly working system. This article discusses the process of the fabrication and implementation of the circuitry, hardware, and programming for the first iteration of the active version of the Telenursing RoboPuppet.
