PEDIATRIC ROBOTICS: A JOURNEY FROM LAB INNOVATIONS TO SOCIAL IMPACT
There are an estimated 150 million children living with disabilities worldwide. Thanks to recent advances in robotics, therapeutic intervention protocols using robots are now ideally positioned to make an impact on this issue. Dr. Howard will discuss the role of robotics and related technologies for therapy and highlight methods that bring us closer to the goal of integrating robots more fully into our lives.
