Abstract

Socially assistive robots (SARs) can help meet the growing need for rehabilitation assistance; We argue that personalization of human-robot interactions in the context of rehabilitation is multi-layered, and needs to be frequently updated, as opposed to a single setting that might suffice in other contexts. In rehabilitation, personalization is not only important in order to establish engagement, but it is an essential component for the recovery of motor and cognitive abilities over a long-term interaction, and is an essential part of establishing trust between the patient and the SAR.
