Although the field of research in medical robotics and computer-aided therapy is diverse, it is very widely explored at Politecnico di Milano in several departments. Robotics, in particular, is exploited in both therapeutic and assistive fields, showing its great potential as an effective personal aid. Given the saturation and marginal cost reduction going on in the automotive market, health care represents one of the potential investments in the fields of service and professional robotics that will boost the research in mechatronics, augmented reality, and intelligence augmentation in the next years. Potential benefits, especially for the elderly, are straightforward in the field of robot-based assistive systems, which will allow for a better quality of life (daily life activities and mobility) even for severely disabled patients.
