Abstract

Robotic rollators can play a significant role as assistive devices for people with impaired movement and mild cognitive deficit. This paper presents an overview of the i-Walk concept; an intelligent robotic rollator offering cognitive and ambulatory assistance to people with light to moderate movement impairment, such as the elderly. We discuss the two robotic prototypes being developed, their various novel functionalities, system architecture, modules and their function scope, and present preliminary experimental results with actual users.

Keyphrases: Assistive Robotics, Elderly, intelligent system, movement disorders, Multimodal system, Robotic Rollator
