The goal of this study was to explore how children who have significant physical disabilities could use a robotic arm to interact in a play and exploration activity. These children cannot manipulate toys and other objects to engage in typical play activities with adults or their peers. A robotic...
This paper presents technical aspects of a robot manipulator developed to facilitate learning by young children who are generally unable to grasp objects or speak. The severity of these physical disabilities also limits assessment of their cognitive and language skills and abilities. The CRS...
Abstract Purpose: To determine whether low cost robots provide a means by which children with severe disabilities can demonstrate understanding of cognitive concepts. Method: Ten children, ages 4 to 10, diagnosed with cerebral palsy and related motor conditions, participated. Participants, had...
Assistive technologies (AT) can provide significant assistance in accomplishing the tasks of daily living for persons who have disabilities. Five types of ethical principles underlie the distribution and use of AT: beneficence, nonmaleficence, justice, autonomy and fidelity. Beneficence, ...
A robotic arm system was developed for use by children who had very severe motor disabilities and varying levels of cognitive and language skills. The children used the robot in a three-task sequence routine to dig objects from a tub of dry macaroni. The robotic system was used in the child’s...
Can young children with severe disabilities learn to use a robot to accomplish tasks? Can they learn that they have some control over their environment? What are new developments in robotics that might benefit these very young children? This article provides the latest in robotics-- exciting news...
