Title: Development of human interactive robots for aging society
Abstract: Human interactive robots are highly expected to play important roles in human health, such as social welfare support, training and health promotion, as well as health prediction, prevention and rehabilitation. This talk describes on human’s motor functions, such as balance, walking and running, and cognitive functions change with the increase of age using advanced measurement and computer simulation technologies, such as biofeedback, NIRS and immersion-type interactive dynamic simulation. It will show examples of our robotics researches related to above applications such as an up arms’ rehabilitation robot system, a virtual shopping street to evaluate the elderly people’s high order brain cognitive functions in their everyday life and so on.
