I-SUPPORT

I-Support, a robotic shower system to the autonomy of people with difficulties

I-SUPPORT is a European project for HORIZON 2020 with the aim of developing a robotic shower system that allows an improvement in the quality of life for elderly citizens or people with diminished autonomy. This project will help these people to carry out personal hygiene independently. The robotic system shower helps to perform all tasks in the bathroom and could be directed from a central controller. The system will have the following elements:

  • A motorized wheelchair shower.
  • A robotic shower hose dedicated to the provision of pouring water, soaping, etc.
  • A robotic washer engaged in the provision of washing, cleaning and drying.

The main groups are the people who may experience functional disabilities or difficulties in daily tasks, people regardless of age who have neurological diseases or who encounter problems in carrying out the tasks in the bathroom, and professionals or caretakers those that may be helpful for the shower environment.

The project is primarily aimed to elder people who may experience functional disabilities or difficulties in daily tasks, people who have neurological diseases or who encounter problems in carrying out the tasks in the bathroom, and also aimed to professional or caretakers of these people. I-SUPPORT is being managed and coordinated by Robotnik, whose partners are various universities and technology centers. They are working together to achieve the target set within three years.
