Elderly care gets a modern twist
A 'CAREBOT' which can remind elderly people to take medication and exercise, and even tell them jokes, has been created.
The machine is designed to supplement the intensive care required by care home residents and help perform routine tasks.
Robot P37 S65 is the brainchild of University of Salford researcher Antonio Espingardeiro. His robot can be programmed with many routine health interventions designed for people with dementia, such as speech therapy and object recognition exercises.
Through face recognition it can also remember the preferences and requirements of each patient, as programmed by a human worker.
