Abstract

With the percentage of the elderly population rapidly increasing as the Baby Boomer generation reaches retirement, the demand for assistive care will soon override the supply of caregivers available. Additionally, as most individuals age, the number of age-related limitations preventing them from completing everyday tasks independently may increase. Through FRASIER (Fostering Resilient Aging with a Self-efficacy and Independence Enabling Robot), the project team developed an assistive robot with a goal of providing a solution to this challenge.
