The Geriatronics-Summit aims to bring to light the current and envisioned robotic solutions in the context of Geriatronics1 and to raise awareness among policy-makers with respect to corresponding technology. The event aims at addressing the following questions:
- How to address through Geriatronics the increasing shortage and geographic disparities of care providers and the overburdened health care?
- How robotics and AI can enhance independence, mobility, self-determination, and health for the elderly for as long as possible?
- What are the rules of autonomy? How to address moral, ethical and cultural, and/or personal challenges and dilemmas for Geriatronics?

The “Modeling and Rehabilitation Robotics” research team developed a safe and minimalistic control and learning (AI) algorithm, which automatically finds and provides the optimal balance between rigid support and “soft” guidance for any given patient during therapy. This assist-as-needed (AAN) control strategy is being commercialized in collaboration with the high-tech startup Reactive Robotics and Schön Klinik Bad Aibling, as part of a robotic assistive device called VEMO, used for the early rehabilitation of ICU patients.

As life expectancies in industrial countries get longer, qualified nursing care workers are in increasingly short supply. The TUM User and Research Center for Geriatronics aims to remedy this problem. The center opened on Saturday in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Robotic assistants will be developed and tested in field studies to help old people to live independently. The project will receive support from the Bavarian state government and the municipality of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
