Upcoming talk at Robotics: Science and Systems Workshop
Doctoral candidate, Kate Tsui, will give a talk at the workshop on "Good Experimental Methodology in Robotics" at the 2009 Robotics: Science and Systems conference in Seattle, WA on June 28. Her talk will focus on establishing clinical credibility for rehabilitation and assistive robots through experimental design.
The number of clinical trials using robots has increased over the last ten years. It is not practical for all experiments to be clinical trials through the development cycle of a rehabilitation or assistive robot. How can system developers incorporate aspects of the clinical trials to gain credibility among clinicians during development period evaluations?
