The objective of the CAREBOT project –Intelligent Robotic Units for ambulatory care activity– is to develop an assistant for the accompaniment of the patient during their access to the assistance service, in ambulatory activity scenarios, and an assistant for home monitoring, guaranteeing personalized attention and adapted to the user and optimizing the work for the healthcare professional.
Facing the great health challenge derived from the demographic change in progress towards an increasingly aging population, with a longer life expectancy, which generates greater care demands, it is a priority of health services to find formulas for quality, equitable and sustainable care.
