The DD-13 medical assistant droid was a medical droid, designed by Ubrikkian Steamworks. Its primary purpose was the installation of cybernetic implants.
The DD-13 stood on a tripod and was equipped with modular arms, allowing it to be customized with whatever tools were needed for the operation. Its sensors were located in its cylindrical head.
DD-13s were originally intended to be used on Ubrikkian-produced medical transports. When the plans for them fell through, they were then shipped to battlefield medical units on the front lines. It was there, due to its purpose of installing implants and organ transplants, where soldiers gave it its nickname of "Galactic Chopper droid". Soldiers also drew black humor from the fact that Ubrikkian was known for producing heavy machinery as opposed to delicate medical tools.
