Robotics for Aging Healthcare Workshop

People are living significantly longer lives than in previous decades. Life expectancy in the world today has increased by two decades since 1950 (from 48 years in 1950–55 to 68 years in 2005-10). This will result on a tremendous shortage on staff and qualified healthcare personnel in the near future. There is a growing necessity for new technologies, such as Robotics, that can assist the elderly in their daily living, fill much-needed healthcare positions and low-skill service-oriented roles.
