Care Robotics

Intelligent service robots designed to assist care professionals

Taking care of a person in need is a human and personal responsibility. This requires empathy, kindness, patience, professionalism and expertise. In Europe, care workers are well trained but there is a shortage of skilled labor. Simultaneously, the number of people requiring support is rapidly and constantly increasing. How can this gap be countered? Robotic assistants collaborating with people have the potential to free up time for care professionals to spend for human interactions and complex care tasks. Through the offer of support by robots in daily life, independence, wellbeing and health condition can be improved.

F&P Robotics strongly believes that friendly and smart robots have the potential to increase the quality of life for all of us: the ones taking care and the ones taken care of.

Care Applications


Lio is a human-friendly mobile service robot with a functional arm designed to help and support people. He can be used in a variety of places – nursing homes, rehabilitation and geriatric centers and at home. Lio is able to communicate with people, entertain them and support professionals in their daily tasks.


Massimo is a robot for force controlled massage applications. The program can be adapted to specific needs. He can be used in a variety of places – nursing, geriatric, rehabilitation centers or at home.


Guido is a robot for guided mobilization used in rehabilitation and physiotherapy. Guido helps to improve and preserve physical mobility. Resistance and force-control functions allow Guido to adapt the program in order to fulfill specific needs.

Cluster Conference Berlin

On September 17th 2019 Alina Gasser from F&P Robotics and Claudia Möller had a speech at Cluster conference in Berlin. The topic was our current project in Pflegepraxiszentrum Berlin, where we are currently testing our assistive care robot Lio. The highlights are that Lio is the only long-term project in a European care institutions so far, as they are convinced about our participatory development and user centered design. They rented Lio as a first step to test the collaboration with the clients and employees.
