Millions of individuals experience impaired mobility usually accompanied by limited to no manual dexterity. These are otherwise fully capable individuals, who could lead more meaningful and productive lives if technologies were available to better enable communication, computer access, and mobility. In this symposium, we will cover research, among other things, on human-robot interfaces and technologies that will allow for persons with severe and debilitating disabilities to live more independently.
The symposium topics include, but are not limited to:
- Technologies for Improving Quality of Daily Living
- Rehabilitation Robotics and Telemanipulation
- Assisting Recovery from Stroke
- Technologies to Enhance Mobility and Function for Individuals with Severe Disability
(e.g. Spinal Cord Injury, ASL, Muscle Dystrophy, etc.)
- Wheelchair Transportation Safety
- Wheeled Mobility
- School and Workplace Accommodations
- Communication enhancement
- Hearing enhancement
- Assistance to the blind
- Robotic Prosthesis and Orthotics
- Recreational Technologies and Exercise Physiology Benefiting Persons with Disabilities
