Robotics in Dementia Patient Care

Robotics in Dementia Patient Care
let me tell you a joke do you go to bed every night because the bed one comes you that's a good one pepper I like that so people are living longer notice and as they're living longer they are realizing them a lot of these people are affected with

dementia

and lived wrote in people with

dementia

is exponential all across the world what we would like to do is with

care

provision and we would like to have to mention read a lot of

care

24/7

care

and it's impossible with human beings to be present with somebody who has

dementia

24/7 so what we would like to do is use robots in providing

care

so we are not going to replace

care

providers but we would like to augment

care

by helping out with

robotics

when somebody is recently diagnosed with

dementia

which is the MCI stage my cognitive impairment we would send that person home with pepper and pepper would follow them live with them and at that stage their daily living activities are still intact so they know what they usually do you know they may get up in the morning take a shower go for a run come back have some breakfast read the news and go to work so pepper will follow them and learn their daily living activities and as they progress in

dementia

and this to get their daily living activities like they may forget to take a shower or they may forget to have breakfast pepper will remind them and help assist in those daily living activities so for instance if the person made omelet for breakfast every morning and forgets...

how to make omelet pepper would offer the recipe lens and the person forgot to go for a run pepper might say hey you know you haven't done your exercise but today would you like to do it now do you want me to remind you how to do your exercise so how to maintain their quality of living so delay there but getting into assisted living

care

face-recognition could help ever recognize couple of people which at some point the user which is our

dementia

patient

might not be able to recognize we can also like avoid social isolation of the

patient

by having pepper have some kind of conversation with them like ah they see the car moving it is theirs become aware that there's like a lot of pretty pathways to getting a psychology like so it's nice to like actually be working on something that's using technology for good and that can help people so I guess some of it's very rewarding to work on a project like this as an engineer I think in terms of you know well how can I make this application work it's more than that you know we're working with human beings and we have to understand this ethics related there so we have an emphasis to works with us as long she's she looks like an alien it looks like she's really

care

ful so like obviously when you join a program you're not really sure they're what's gonna be next after late after you're done graduating but like my experience over time with the research over here it like it really...
robotics in dementia patient care
encouraged me to continue with the research track I'm driven to help assist people the

dementia

use technology in helping them at least maintain their quality of life if not improving their quality of life
