dc.description.abstractThe use of robots in assistive technology is well-studied, with numerous robotic arms for rehabilitative applications that have been designed and tested to-date, and several that are commercially available. These robots are intended to improve independence and quality of life for people who are unable to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) without additional aid. Unfortunately, they are often prohibitively expensive, costing tens of thousands of dollars. Additionally, they pose a risk of harmful collision to their users and must incorporate sophisticated sensors and control methods to ensure the users’ safety. This paper evaluates an alternative platform for assistive robotics which alleviates these issues: continuum manipulators.en_US
