I’m making the acquaintance of so many interesting people and creatures at the Las Vegas’ annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES). In fact, one of the most interesting creatures was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Most Therapeutic Robot. This adorable robot has been found to reduce stress in both the elderly and their caregivers.
Although admittedly too expensive, this gadget might be the perfect investment for Alzheimer’s care and assisted living residences. Paro has been shown to have a psychological effect on patients, which can improve their abilities to relax and to become motivated.
