Medical imaging, biomedical signals, rehabilitation robotics, assistive robotics.
In a broad sense, we can say that robots are medical robots those who work in any of the following scenarios; a surgical environment, a rehabilitation scenario or a home care environment where tasks are performed. The common feature found in these robots is that apart from collaborating to perform a certain task, these medical robots have a direct physical relationship to the human person, that is a physical human robot interaction (PHRI). Obviously this feature determines the man-machine interface of these robots, and makes them different from the classical industrial robots.
This paradigm shift makes this course provides an innovative aspect as to know the operation of robots that are appearing, and allow the student to be prepared to work with these service robots.
