Creation and design of a mobile service robot

Various studies have shown that robots are perceived as coaches.

TEDIRO is therefore working with an experienced design agency to develop an appealing robot design for the mobile base, based on a usability consideration.

The robot should be suitable for a range of different applications and work with both sitting and standing patients.

“From my experience, the robot is a motivator for the patients who have undergone surgery. Their ultimate goal is to be able to walk again as quickly as possible. The robot can make a decisive contribution to this.”

TEDIRO relies on physiotherapeutic expertise

  • algorithms for application “gait training on crutches" were developed with a pool of experts for objective gait assessment
  • proof-of-concept at the Waldkliniken Eisenberg (German Center for Orthopedics), one of the largest orthopedic clinics in Germany
  • further studies in European clinics (Spain, Italy, France) are in preparation for 2023
  • physiotherapeutic expertise also in the management of TEDIRO
  • regular implementation of expert rounds with physiotherapists for optimal product development

As a young company, TEDIRO wants to align the development of the product specifically and maximally with the needs of the target group. To this end, TEDIRO has established a panel of experts with representatives from the fields of nursing and physiotherapy to specifically advance the development of our product.

Once a quarter, the experts meet in a relaxed atmosphere for exchange and discussion. There is no obligation to attend. An expense allowance is available for each meeting.
