This online seminar series aims at introducing the work of Scottish universities on robots in healthcare. With the current pandemic, a rise in robotic tools for healthcare seems inevitable. So what can we as a community do to support the efforts of healthcare professionals not just during this current crisis but in general?
In this first Scottish workshop on robots in healthcare, Michael Burke from the University of Edinburgh and Christian Dondrup from Heriot-Watt University present their current work on robotic applications in hospitals. The two presentations will focus on work undertaken in novel sensing methods to support surgery, smart prosthetics, and using mobile robots for patient support during hospital visits, combating loneliness, and dementia therapy support. Titles and abstracts will be made available as soon as possible.
This event is aimed at academics and healthcare professionals interested in the topic and serves as a first testbed for Scotland wide online seminars. The presentations will be 20 minutes each, leaving time for discussion of ideas surrounding the topic ranging from what is currently needed to support essential care to general needs of the future.
