The UT Arlington Research Institute (UTARI) is a research and development unit of The University of Texas at Arlington specializing in applying cutting-edge technologies to real-world engineering problems.
UTARI welcomes outside researchers and industry leaders to use our equipment and tap our expertise. We also frequently host symposiums, consortia, and events to bring together our partners to focus on specific issues.
UTARI’s robotic nursing assistant, donated by RE2
Inc., is a mobile,
manipulable device with two arms that can aid nurses with physically intensive
tasks, such as helping a patient sit up or transfer to a gurney.
