Estimation of Injury by Falls for Risk Assessment of Robotic Care Devices

Abstract

In order for manufacturers of robotic devices for nursing care to predict injury in accidents related to their products, risk assessments are carried out according to various standards e.g. ISO 12100. Probabilities of death, bone fracture and head injury are estimated by analysing data published in Japan and U.S.
