Correction to: Asian Bioethics Review

  https://doi.org/10.1007/s41649-018-0053-0

The original article published in volume 10 issue 2 on pp. 143–155 had an error. Table 1 headers “Mobility assistance” and “Automated toilet” were inadvertently removed, while the headers “Movement actuation” and “Conversation partner” were in the wrong columns.

Both the incorrect and the correct tables are reproduced for clarity.
