    IEEE Biorob focuses on innovative research and optimal development of bio-robotic technologies. In our opinion rehabilitation robotics are part of a bigger “ecosystem” and the development of bio-mechatronics often does not consider this “ecosystem”. This term includes the user/patient, the application of the technology and the ethical and societal aspects. Our session aims to discuss technology in this broader context and kick-start new developments in order to optimize the use of robotics in rehabilitation. Challenging the current use of robotics in rehabilitation will lead to an educative session for users, developers and rehabilitation experts altogether. We will engage a discussion between attendees and speakers that otherwise would not have the chance to share their opinions/experiences and benefit from each other in regular Biorob session.
