Description

The Bio-Robotics Lab at UWM works towards designing, developing, and controlling robots that assist in rehabilitation of physically disabled individuals. The introduction of an interactive humanoid robot to physical therapy practices enables multi-patient therapy and is intended to enable a more enjoyable experience by children and patients with mental disabilities. The humanoid robot (NAO, 25 degrees of freedom) integrated with motion sensor technology (Microsoft Kinect) programmed through Robotic Operating System (ROS) allows for direct interaction between robot and patient. The NAO robot walks the patient through preprogrammed rehabilitation exercises while detecting the patient’s accuracy from the Kinect motion sensor.
