This disadvantage may be countered by making compromises to the design appropriate to the specific system requirements. There is likely to be a longer development time and cost. Any finished device needs to be of a quality and reliability comparable with the best commercial standards. Fig. 3. Regenesis workstation This was the approach taken at the Neil Squire Foundation in designing their Regenesis manipulator (Fig. 3) [3] to best suit the environment and tasks. Their manipulator was based on a horizontal beam, around which an extending arm could translate and rotate.

Robotics has obviously moved on from that early definition. While robots were initially employed as handling machines in factories, their application is now much wider. In 1987 the Department of Trade and Industry in the UK had an Advanced Robotics initiative to encourage the wider use of robotics in areas other than factories. They used this definition of Advanced Robotics. ” This is a very wide-ranging definition, but one of the key features is the “integration of technologies”. The aim of this integration of advanced technologies is to produce a device that can both operate autonomously and in an environment which may be unstructured and/or hostile.

In order to significantly advance the application of RR to rehabilitation practice, the link between scientific investigations rehabilitation robotics and the clinical application of results must be strengthened. Does the robot contribute to the user’s privacy? – Can the robot help activities that are strictly private? - For instance, cloth change and bathing are strict private activities and it will be important if the robot can be helpful for them.
