Cutting-edge robot 'Little Joe' fights germs at Loyola University Health System

June 20, 2013 (CHICAGO)

This sleek-looking robot nicknamed Little Joe is on a mission to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and bacterial spores, all of which can make patients very sick. Little Joe has a rotating telescopic head that emits ultraviolet rays in closed, unoccupied rooms.

A similar robot is doing the same work at Gottleib Memorial Hospital.
