Atsushi Tsukahara
Research Field
Robotics, rehabilitation sciences, and welfare engineering
Research Theme
In our country with a super-ageing society, the locomotive syndrome is a social issue that decreases the independence of the patients as well as increases the need of nursing-care. In order to resolve this problem, we have been working in research and development on an assistive technology for activity of daily living. In particular, we are aiming at the realization of intuitively easy to use human assistive robots/devices for the patients.
