Assistive and rehabilitation robotics currently covers a broad spectrum of research areas, from intelligent robots that act as aides, companions and educators; to robots that provide physical assistance for mobility, manipulation and support; to embedded robotics, ambient intelligence and intelligent spaces. People whose ability to perform daily living activities is limited or inhibited by injury, disease or impairment include (but are not limited to) stroke survivors with sustained neurological injuries, elderly populations with skeletal muscle weakness, persons with low-vision or blindness, traumatic injuries to the brain or spinal cord, and a variety of degenerative diseases that affect cognition, muscle tone and motor control.
