Abstract
This paper presents a longitudinal case study of Robot Assisted Therapy for cardiac rehabilitation. The patient, who is a 60-year old male that suffered a myocardial infarction and received angioplasty surgery, successfully recovered after 35 sessions of rehabilitation with a social robot, lasting 18 weeks. The sessions took place directly at the clinic and relied on an exercise regime which was designed by the clinicians and delivered with the support of a social robot and a sensor suite. The robot monitored the patient's progress, and provided personalised encouragement and feedback. We discuss the recovery of the patient and illustrate how the use of a social robot, its sensory systems and its personalised interaction was instrumental to maintain engagement with the programme and to the patient's recovery. Of note is a critical event that was promptly detected by the robot, which allowed fast intervention measures to be taken by the medical staff for the referral of the patient for further surgery.
