ROBO REHKIDS: Competence Center for interactive assistanceROBOtics for REHaKIDS
The societal and now also legal claim (see Federal Participation Act) to realize social participation of children and young people with various forms of disabilities is firmly anchored on the one hand, but on the other hand, implementation is still seriously hampered in most places. In addition to urgently needed conceptual, organizational and personnel adjustments, the potential for robotic assistance systems in this area is far from exhausted. Their use offers special opportunities, especially for the target group of children and young people, because their unprejudiced attitude toward and ability to learn with technical assistance systems is particularly pronounced. The intensified, self-determined and everyday use of such assistance robotics therefore offers good opportunities to improve participation and also quality of care under given health economic conditions.
