Abstract

This chapter describes both the current (Anno Domini 2003) and future processes of prescribing the Assistive Robotic Manipulator (ARM, also known as “Manus”) to potential client/users within the Dutch public health insurance system. In addition, the results of two studies conducted in the Netherlands relevant to the costeffectiveness of the ARM, the indication criteria, and targeted user groups, are summarized and discussed.
