Robotic-Based Prevention and Health Promotion in Care Facilities – Interactive Design for Group Sessions
European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET)
Robotic-based technologies may support older adults, people in need of care and relief professional actors in the health system. In this demonstration paper, the authors present a robotic-based system designed for individual and joint activities in care-facilities. Empirical insights and results from a 14-month participatory design study focusing on ideation, participation and evaluation of Socially-Assistive Robots for both, older adults in need of care and professional caregivers in different care and medical settings were considered. This work aims to be an inspiration and orientation for ...
