Domestic care

The care sector is also increasingly using the advantages of mobile gripping systems in order to guarantee that people can continue to live independently within their own four walls as long as possible. The potential of human/robot collaboration in this area ranges from domestic care and rehabilitation applications to prostheses and orthoses which are becoming more and more effective. In this case, components from SCHUNK are also playing an integral role in this cutting edge development. One example of this is the FRIEND, a service robot developed for people with paraplegia by researchers at the University of Bremen; this relies on the high qualities of the LWA 4D with 7 degrees of freedom and the 3-finger industrial hand SDH-2.

The goals of the Amarob project is the further research, development and implementation of methods for controlling manipulators of rehabilitation robots.
