For the past two years, we have been working as a partner in the RAMCIP project (Robotic Assistant for MCI Patients at home), funded by Horizon 2020 funded project. RAMCIP aims to research and develop real robotic solutions for assistive robotics for the elderly and those suffering from Mild Cognitive Impairments and dementia. This is a key step to developing a wide range of assistive technologies. We will adopt existing technologies from the robotics community, fuse those with user-centred design activities and practical validation, with aim to create a step-change in robotics for assisted living.
We’re really excited to announce that we have begun clinical trials with the RAMCIP robot in Barcelona, and you can see video of that below.
We built the hand of the RAMCIP robot. It’s very early stages but we’re really excited to see these trials begin!
