Workshop: Novel patient-robot interfaces and multimodal interaction in Rehabilitation Robotics
IEEE RO-MAN 2014
Edinburgh, 25-29th August
The workshop will take place on August 25th, 2014 at the Edinburgh Conference Center at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.
Workshop Presenters: Farshid Amirabdollahian, Yong-Kwun Lee, Rui Loureiro, Stefano Mazzoleni, Ramazan Unal
The use of robotic systems for rehabilitation is increasingly providing important results through several experimental clinical trials. The design, development and validation of innovative patient-robot interfaces and multimodal interaction to be implemented in such systems represent a challenging research topic of interest both in the bioengineering and clinical field. This workshop will:
• will provide state-of-the-art descriptions of an innovative and challenging field of bioengineering and clinical interest;
• will be focused on robot-assisted rehabilitation which is a topic of currently active research;
• will be focused on interactions of participants to exchange ideas, discuss recent research results, explore new directions in research and technological transfer, and propose international focus groups on specific areas of research interest.
Workshop schedule (half-day)
Primary audience: engineers, physicians, PhD students, researchers in academic spin-off companies and companies involved in research.
Secondary audience: graduate and undergraduate students, therapists, and other clinicians.
