The future of mobility and ambulation for individuals in wheelchairs will be optimized through advanced robotics and related assistive technologies. Robotic exoskeletons can facilitate standing and walking in individuals with neurological conditions, thereby maximizing quality of life and minimizing risks associated with prolonged wheelchair use. This panel will present an overview of the engineering of robotics for healthcare and how these technologies will shape the future of medicine.
