Researchers Create a Robot Crawling Model to Understand how much Bacteria Babies Inhale

Robot Crawling Model

Researchers developed a simplified robot crawling infant model to study how much bacteria and dust particles babies are inhaling, according to an article published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology on January 23, 2018.

A team of researchers at Purdue built a crawling robot model to mimic a crawling infant. This tinfoil-wrapped cyclops, mashes its arms onto the floor to simulate how much dust a real baby would kick up.

According to the study findings, the filth child—the crawling robot model—stirred up a cloud of nasty particles with a concentration as much as 20 times greater than geographically higher spots in a room. A baby’s body, however, is not as well equipped to handle what they inhale. “For an adult, a significant portion of the biological particles are removed in the upper respiratory system, in the nostrils and throat,” says lead researcher Brandon Boor in a statement earlier this month.

But for very young children, they more often breathe through their mouths, and a significant fraction is deposited in the lower airways — the tracheobronchial and pulmonary regions. The particles make it to the deepest regions of their lungs.” This means that this could be bad for the reparation of babies.

However, this could also improve the immune system of babies, as per another study which states that “When an infant is exposed to a very high diversity of microbes, at a high concentration, they can have a lower rate of asthma later in life.”
