Care Robotics

Intelligent service robots designed to assist care professionals in their daily tasks

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.

We from F&P Robotics strongly believe 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.
