Abstract

This paper presents a modular robot for assisting individuals with spinal cord injury with everyday tasks. The basic premise of modularity for task-variable environments is laid out, and the modular robot design is detailed including needs assessment, kinematics, and hardware. Early pilot testing of the robot is also described.
