Children learn to use a wheelchair Roly-Robot

The technique involves the researcher trainees to learn to drive a small robot along a line painted on the floor. The force feedback joystick used to control the wheelchair can also provide physical assistance to the driver at a level appropriate to their ongoing performance. When captured, the robot performs a dance and the president plays a tune. The haptic joystick support has been found to improve learning in both non-disabled children trained in a tactile and help the child with a severe motor disability.They conclude that these data suggest that physicians and patients should be aware of possible increased risk of stroke, myocardial infarction, but not in patients with RVO.

Laura Marchal-Crespo, worked with a team of researchers at the University of California at Irvine, USA, to conduct the study. He said: The conventional approach to driver training electric wheelchair is expensive and time-consuming, usually requires the help of the hand on the hand of a qualified therapist.

To lower costs and improve access to training, we have developed a robotic wheelchair system on which children with disabilities can safely develop driving skills at their own pace with minimal assistance.
