Robotics in rehabilitation

Abstract
Robotics in rehabilitation provide considerable opportunities to improve the quality of life for physically disabled people. However, practical results limited, mainly due to the need for developing new robotics concepts where people are where they are working in separeted areas. This paper reveals some of the developments needed and presents two projects currently underway at Lund University. The first one is concerned with end-effector design for a robotic workstation for officebased tasks, while the second is concerned with a mobile robotic system for use in medical an chemical laboratories by disabled people. Both projects show promising results. There is also a need for further research in developing new robotic systems for use in... (More)

There is also a need for further research in developing new robotic systems for use in rehabilitation with new mechanical features, as well as programming and control suitable for any user. (Less)
