Abstract

The demographic change is expected to challenge the healthcare sector which in many countries is already struggling today leading to, e.g., a shortage of staff. Since robot technology is playing a minor role in health- care today, robotics is considered to be one mean to mitigate some of the challenges related to the demographic changes. This paper discusses hurdles for introducing robotics solutions in healthcare and describes the identification of a use case as well as the development of a robot prototype. End users have been involved throughout an iterative development process leading to a prototype that has been tested during normal operations.
