The goal of the 7th International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics is to close the gap between high technology and accessibility for people having lost their independence due to the loss of physical and/or cognitive capabilities. Robots and mechatronic devices bring the opportunity to improve the autonomy of diabled people and facilitate their social and professional integration by assisting them to perform daily living tasks. Topics include: communication and learning applications in SCI and CP; interface and Internet-based designs; issues in human-machine interaction; personal robotics; hardware and control; evaluation methods; clinical experiences; orthotics and prosthetics; robotics for older adults; service robotics; and movement physiology and motor control.
