Abstract:

----------------------------------------



Assistive robots for health and welfare applications are required to display perceptual,

cognitive and bodily-kinaesthetic capabilities that are natural and intuitive for older people

and persons with disabilities to interact with, communicate with, work with as partners,

and learn to adapt to their needs. However, the embodiment of such capabilities has been

scarcely studied, so it is still required that the health and social care staff and the user groups

could explore and learn how to exploit the capabilities of the assistive robots. Therefore,

a multidisciplinary approach to promote the study from the engineering and human science

to introduce the next generation of assistive robots is desired. The goal of this workshop is

to provide a forum for sharing the experiences from the engineering and human science

research on the development, testing and assessment of assistive robots and present

the most recent advances and challenges in order to foreseen novel designing approaches

and user based studies addressing healthcare and social welfare applications in the ambient

assisted living from a world-wide perspective with point of departure in interdisciplinary

research collaboration.



The workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Rehabilitation Robotics

- Physically Assistive Devices

- Prosthetics and Exoskeletons

- Wearable robotics

- Welfare technology

- Mechatronics systems for assistance and rehabilitation
