The AdaMeKoR project is developing an adaptive and multifunctional motorized bed with a robotic arm system for use in nursing care. Caregivers and care recipients are to be supported in everyday, physically stressful care activities at and in the care bed. Sensor components are being developed for this purpose in order, for example, to allow for an adjustment of the bed position depending on the situation. Various holding and support functions of the robotic arm are being tested in the care laboratory, for example for bed-wheelchair transfers or the handing of objects. The system is also designed to continuously monitor the posture of caregivers during the mobilization or transfer of care recipients and to provide information on optimization in the case of unfavorable loads.
