The aim of the subject is to provide the students with knowledge about medical and assistive robotics. In the section of medical robotics, surgical robots, body exploration, radiological medicine, medical training and the full cycle of automation of all medical processes will be studied, from the identification of patalogy phase to recovery one. Special attention will be given to robotic rehabilitation, both physical and cognitive: exoskeletons, dexterity test, task banks, serious games, etc.
The assistance robot part will focus on assisting people with special needs (the elderly, congenital or acquired patalogies, other types of help). The robotization will focus on the application to the tasks of DLA (Daily Life Aactivities): personal hygiene, food, manipulation of objects, etc. The technologies that will be taught will be multiple: mobile robots, mobile manipulators, climbing robots, member support systems, sensorial system, planning and decison taken, etc. The lessons will focus on learning at the end user level.
