The overall objective of AdaMeKoR is the development of an adaptive and multifunctional motorized bed with robotic arm system for use in nursing.

For this purpose, sensor components are developed, e.g. to be able to adjust the bed position depending on the situation. Different holding and supporting functions of the system are tested, for example for bed-wheelchair transfer. In addition, the system is to monitor the posture of the nursing staff and, in the event of unfavorable loads, provide information for optimization.

In the future, AdaMeKoR is expected to improve the autonomy and quality of life of care recipients and to significantly reduce the physical strain on caregivers when lifting and moving a patient.

The main technical objective of the work of the research department CPS in the project is the prototypical development and investigation of three different control modalities for an assisted robot arm installed at a nursing bed. Each of these three control concepts is intended to enable users to carry out daily activities (ADLs) autonomously and efficiently. The main scientific goal here is to document and analyse the advantages and disadvantages of the individual control procedures in the context of evaluation tests with healthy and restricted subjects.
