China's leading robot maker, SIASUN Robot & Automation Co Ltd, said it has been developing robots that can provide better services for the aged.
Based in Shenyang, capital of Northeast China's Liaoning province, SIASUN's products have been utilized in nursing institutions, medical institutions and hospitals for the elderly.
So far, the company has created more than 20 kinds of robotic products, including intelligent robots for daily care, intelligent beds, semi-automatic bed chairs and walking aids.
The enterprise said robots could assist the elderly in daily care, which would increase efficiency and reduce the labor intensity of nursing staff.
"With the increasing aging population, there is a huge market and room to grow for rehabilitation robots for the elderly in China," said Li Xuewei, general manager of SIASUN's medical and health robot division.
Li said service robots for the elderly and the disabled, such as nursing and rehabilitation robots, would be in high demand in the near future.
As a leading enterprise in China's robotics industry, SIASUN's products have been exported to more than 30 countries and regions.
