  3. Abstract:
  4. This paper describes a nursing robot system currently under development at the Center of Excellence in Design, Robotics and Automation. Our goal was to design and fabricate of a robot specifically for paraplegic patients and the design procedure led to a plan which can be employed in any hospital environment. Through the design procedure, the team members conducted a survey on the robot client's needs and disabilities which provided a unique view on mechanical design features, in addition to, performing dynamical analysis on the designed mechanisms. Dynamical Simulation of mechanisms helped us to find the best design and solutions as well as optimization of parts has resulted in a matchless mobile robot which can serve as nurse, rehabilitation center, physical therapist and virtual physician
