Degree of Innovation
This project has a high degree of innovation, due to the fact that it consists of the measurement of basic but necessary characteristics, such as their acceptance and usefulness, thus sketching an idea of what the demands presented by users are. It has a study of the robot in the real environment and extending in time.
This is intended to end the limitations that are currently being experienced with its international application (SPARC 2015). In addition, to providing great innovation in the Andalusian healthcare sector, it is proposed to expand it to the business world due to the support of a leading company such as DomusVi. This will facilitate the transfer of results to the productive sector.
