In Europe, EU-funded Company offers to elderly the possibility of having a robot that help them with: household chores, remembering the time to take their medicine, offering them their favorite drink and invite them to walk and to visit friends.
But not only Europe is making robots. Japan is developing various technologies to help seniors. Panasonic created a robot with 24 fingers that is an expert washing heads, very useful for a impair person. It should be noted that this robot has already been tested in Japanese beauty salons. Another very popular robot in Japan is “Paro”, who helps elderly to wash the dishes, load heavy things and administer medications.
