  • Robot therapy, which uses robots as substitution for animals in “animal therapy,” is a new application of the robots in welfare and medical fields. The seal robot named PARO has been developed especially for the robot therapy since 1993. PARO was commercialize in Japan in 2005 and in Europe and the US in 2009, and has been used at hospitals and facilities in about 30 countries. Recent researches revealed that robot therapy has the same effects on interacting people as like animal therapy. In 2009, PARO was certified as a “biofeedback medical device” by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) in the US. PARO can be applied to various kinds of therapy as like real animals, but this presentation focuses on applications to elderly with dementia because explicit differences before and after interacting with PARO can be easily observed. Some typical cases and interesting special cases will be introduced. In addition, PARO has been healing victims of disaster by earthquakes in Japan. PARO visited about 20 evacuation shelters, and has been used at about 50 elderly institutions, hospitals, and schools in the disaster area.
