Revolutionary Soft Tissue Robotic Treatment
In the recent years, Traditional Chinese Medicine and massage therapy has been steadily gaining recognition in the medical world and amongst the people worldwide. AiTreat is taking one step further to revolutionize soft tissue treatment by developing a robotic system to provide scientific TCM assessment and professional therapeutic massage services.

How EMMA works
EMMA is equipped with sensors to measure muscle stiffness and uses 3D vision technology to analyze the patient’s body. This data can enhance our patient’s understanding of the condition and allow physicians to make more precise judgment as well.
Following that, the robot will determine the best course of action for our patients based on the information stored by our Artificial Intelligence and EMMA’s robotic arm will perform the therapeutic massage.
With EMMA, clinics and physicians can reduce the heavy reliance on qualified massage therapists in a time where clinics are experiencing a shortage of skilled human resources. This would overall result in lower healthcare costs for patients, who are also increasing in numbers due to the global phenomenon of an ageing population.
EMMA executes massages through soft treatment modules that are warmed to a temperature of between 38℃ and 40℃ to mimic human touch.
Unlike therapy by human massage therapists which are prone to inconsistencies, therapy by EMMA guarantees unchanging precision and effort throughout the entirety of the procedure and even between sessions, at a lower cost.
With the use of information and past records of your condition stored by the Artificial Intelligence (AI), EMMA is able to customize the most effective massage procedure for you.
Your safety is of utmost importance to us. AiTreat has devoted our resources to enhance the safety of our patients. Besides having multiple layers of safety mechanisms in our hardware and software, we have developed our own proprietary technology and algorithm in addition to the existing global safety standards for collaborative robots. The force exerted by EMMA has been limited to a maximum of 100 Newtons – an impact that will feel no more painful than getting struck by a lift door (commonly 150 Newtons). Our patients can rest assure that the typical force applied during massages only ranges from between 20 Newtons to 80 Newtons, with 60 Newtons providing our users with an optimal experience.
In addition, our patients have control over EMMA’s features during the entire massage treatment. On top of being able to adjust the strength of the robot, our patients also have the ability to halt the procedure any time you wish, in the event of any discomfort.
Massage therapy is generally safe when performed by a certified practitioner but there is a small possibility of risks involved. Certain individuals, such as pregnant women and people with existing bleeding disorders or cancer, should consult their physician before undergoing massage therapy.
