Carebots are (hopefully) coming soon!

Posted from

It was 3 years ago this week that I enjoyed my last big trip away; a trip to Japan and Taiwan, that now feels like a life time ago. At that time Japan was leading the field in their use of technology and care robots.  They are still leading the field.

I visited Shintomi Nursing Home in Tokyo that utilizes (at that time) over 20 different types of care bots. I believe that I have already introduced you to Pepper, one of their care bots that entertains and leads exercise classes.

Now I would like to share another one of their technology devices that transforms a bed into a wheelchair in the push of a button; how great is that?  I am sharing a little video that I took.

This technology was available three years ago- can’t wait to see what they are doing now!
