Abstract

This subject merits an entire book to itself in view of the potential applications. Jack Guittet (1985I, II) has published an account of the equipment that can help handicapped people. The application of robotics to medicine in general could relate to the operating of hospitals as much from the point of view of personal assistance (handling), surveillance and care as from that of rehabilitation in which robots with real physical action play an important role. Robotic techniques and/or the judicious use of computers and sensors are already of, and will be of increasing, assistance to patients with sensory handicaps and to doctors (computer-aided diagnosis).
