The Center of Excellence for Humanoid Robots and Bio-Sensing (HuRoBs), Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FKM), UiTM is organizing one day Workshop on Rehabilitation Robotics on 7/6/2011 at Seminar Hall (Level 7), FKM, UiTM. The workshop is focusing on robotics technology for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Cerebral Palsy (CP). The workshop is under HuRoBs’s rehabilitation cluster project entitled “Development of Robot-Based Intervention Platform and Training Tools for ASD and CP”. The speakers are from the Spastic Children’s Association of Selangor & Federal Territory (SCASFT), National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM), HuRoBs, and Clinical Training Center of the Faculty of Medicine, UiTM.

We would like to invite all interested participants including academicians, researchers, parents, therapists, students, government and private agencies and societies to join this workshop.

The workshop objectives:

1. To gather all academician, researchers, individual, therapists, societies and agencies involved in rehabilitation and robotics, especially related with ASD and CP in Malaysia to formulate the national rehabilitation robotics project roadmap.

2. To create awareness by interactive discussions related with rehabilitation and robotics.

3. To engage with experts to study on how robotics technology can be implemented in rehabilitation.

4. To establish connections between robotics communities and rehabilitation communities.
