The second demonstrator has arrived in Rennes University Hospital, in the functional reeducation department of Pr I. Bonan.
RObO-K is featured on the cover of the “World Robotics Service Robots 2015″ published by the IFR, International Federation of Robotics.
Clinical partner of the project, Kerpape center is going to test Robo-K in real situation with patients to check how the robot interacts with the therapeutic process.
For the first time during Innorobo, BA Systèmes will present its new demonstrator ROBO-K. Co-funded by the European Union, this project aims at developing a mobile robot for gait rehabilitation.
From guided vehicles in warehouses and industrial sites to a robot that will help gait rehabilitation for people who suffered from stroke, there is a long path to follow: a few years, from the first studies to the implementation of the first prototypes.
Well-established in the industry, BA Systèmes launches a new activity in the medical field with a robotic medical imaging system in partnership with GE Healthcare. To develop this new activity, BA Systèmes created BA Healthcare, entity entirely dedicated to the manufacturing of mobile robots for medical applications.
Saint-Luc University Hospital has inaugurated its Discovery IGS 730 in 2012, becoming the first hospital in the United States to offer this exciting new technology.
