Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics
Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics investigates the application of robotics in therapy procedures for recovering motor control and motor capabilities in persons with impairment following accidents or diseases such as strokes. It also aims at developing robotic aids for independent living for elderly and disabled people. With the growth of the elderly and disabled population in Europe, in the last decades, this area is getting more and more important for robotics.
This special session aims to bring together robotic researchers both at academic and industrial level worldwide with emphasis for the Iberian community, performing research on Rehabilitation and Assistive robotics.
