Description
Our research group studies on care and rehabilitation using Care Robots(CRs). Legal issues arising from these CRs are diverse. In this paper, we examined legal issues that should be considered in each stage ; manufacturing, processing, installation, use, deterioration, and disposal of CRs, and especially the cases where CRs as medical devices cause damage to patients. Thus, this paper pointed out the subjects as below : “Product Liability Act mainly and secondary general tort law in the manufacturing stage’’, “Defect liability in the processing stage’’, “General tort law in the installation stage”, “Obligation of security or faulty performance responsibility in the use stage” and “Personal Information Protection Law at the disposal stage”. In addition, we suggested the presumed issues that should be examined and indicated the direction of the way of thinking. This study will contribute to creating safety guidelines for the future use of CRs.
