Clinical studies on the use of robotic technologies in the rehabilitation field (RR), ranging from the field of disabling pathologies of neurological origin up to the field of injuries (included the ones into the work) and/or the the support of the elderlies have gained increasing attention. In the last years we have assisted to an increasing use of the robotic devices alone and/or in association with other rehabilitation technologies.
Despite the great development of robotics in the rehabilitation field, however we are assisting to approaches different from each other in the use and in the relevant models of care. As in other sectors, such as telemedicine, robotics is often used very limited to pilot and/or research projects. Just like in telemedicine, all aspects that can strengthen the use of robotics in routine clinical activities must be addressed in the international panorama with strong dedicated initiatives. There is a particular need for scholars to focus on both the innovations in this field and the problems hampering RR, in order to facilitate the correct and effective introduction of this technology into routine clinical programs in stable health care models. I invite you to contribute to this Special Issue, which has a broad scope. The following topics, though not exhaustive, will be considered: continuous innovations in the field, including those related to the COVID-19 pandemic; the full introduction of robots in this setting; initial studies on robots with empathy; the problem of the introduction of this technology into an effective and complete care model. This Special Issue of Healthcare welcomes commentaries, original research, short reports, and reviews on the challenges faced by health systems in this field.
