Wellbeing and Health


The Area is focused on applied technology research in the field of well-being and health. The activity that develops is articulated in two lines of work. On the one hand, the Robotics line encompasses social interaction and the interaction of forces between robots and people, for the development of social or health care services. On the other hand, we have the Decision Support line, in the Socio-Assistance field and in the field of Resource and Process Management.



  • Development of applications and robotics of social interaction.
  • Robotics of interaction of forces man – robot (rehabilitation, toning).
  • Support for the Socio-Assistance decision (Biomedical Signal Processing, Machine Learning).
  • Decision support in the field of resource and process management (standards-based interoperability, discrete process modeling or Digital Twin).

Activity fields

  • Development of social interaction robotics.
  • Development of rehabilitation robotics.
  • ICTs for hospital systems.
