Robotics and Artificial Intelligence to Improve Health Rehabilitation
Researchers have developed a robotic device that provides an innovative motor and cognitive rehabilitation service that can be used at health centres as well as at home. The team has developed a platform made up of four elements: a robot that interacts with the patient, an artificial intelligence system that uses a 3D sensor to control the robot, an application that can be used by health care staff to set up and track sessions, and a cloud-based storage system which contains information and analytics from all of the rehabilitation processes.
