Human Augmentation represents mechanical and electronic additions to the human body to improve various body functions. In the healthcare sector, augmentation may include bionics, organ replacement, exoskeletons, and robotics to provide assistance to those that have physical impairments. The goals of augmentation are many and varied such as rehabilitation, elder care, work and lifestyle enablement.
In many cases, the goal is to replicate biological methods and systems found in nature via electrically or mechanically powered artificial devices. Examples range from artificial organ or body part replacement to exoskeleton suit or robotics. In the case of Collaborative Robots (Co-Bots), robotics is used in collaboration with a human being to enable functions that would otherwise be prohibitive due to physical limitations.
