Although several robot deployments for in-home help of senior citizens have been tested during the past one decade, most of these ideas are still in the prototype stage and are not employed in realtime situations. This study examines the past and present studies and attempted to comprehend why robots haven't yet become successful personal helpers in daily life. The capabilities of the physical platform and the deployment logic are the two complimentary features that formed the focus of this study. Various earlier researches identified application-level capabilities of robots by scrutunizing hardware setups and functions which examine how robots influence users' daily lives and deduces the use of robots in three cayegories of healthcare treatments such as: support, mitigation and reaction. Despite, the value of healthcare interventions is constrained by a functional standstill and a gap between the robotic platform and the intervention's design, we attempted to provide an innovative co-design toolkit that makes use of an integrated approach for robot initiatives in the healthcare industry. This strategy combines robot capabilities to recognized geriatric characteristics to produce a comprehensive perspective that takes into account both the deployment's physical platform and its logic.
