The Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center (PVAMC) participated in a research-based National Demonstration and Evaluation Study of Hospital at Home Care for Elderly Patients. PVAMC continued hospital at home care in a modified form based on the results of that research phase and feedback from patients, families, and staff. The modified clinical program(More)
Flexible manipulators based on soft robotic technologies demonstrate compliance and dexterous maneuverability with virtually infinite degrees-of-freedom. Such systems have great potential in assistive and surgical fields where safe human-robot interaction is a prime concern. However, in order to enable practical application in these environments,(More)
The central concept of this letter is to develop an assistive manipulator that can automate the bathing task for elderly citizens. We propose to exploit principles of soft robotic technologies to design and control a compliant system to ensure safe human–robot interaction, a primary requirement for the task. The overall system is intended to be(More)
