Name The Robot: Community Asked To Vote On MAKO’s Name

CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs invites the community to help them name their newest addition, the MAKO Robot.

“We invited all local students from Kindergarten through 5th grades to enter a coloring sheet and come up with a name for our new robot. Students worked with their teachers to enter their submissions,” said Holly Ragan, Senior Market Development for CHRISTUS® Mother Frances Hospitals in Sulphur Springs and Winnsboro.

The list has been narrowed to five finalist, with the grand winner to be decided by the community.

“The winner will get to meet the robot, have a pizza party, and we will post their photo with the robot and our Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Chris Meltsakos, who will be using the robotic assistant to work on patients’ knees,” Ragan said.

The top five finalist are:

  • Bologknee
  • Roby the Unicorn Robot
  • EbaKNEEzer
  • Kneemo
  • SARA (synovial articulate robot arthroplasty)

All are welcome to join in helping to name the robot. Click there following link: https://bit.ly/30UrT2g. The survey may also be accessed on the Mother Frances Hospital Facebook page or simply by searching #MAKO on Facebook.
