Taizo Exercise Robot to Aid Elderly With Leading Routines
The rapidly aging population of Japan already has more than 40,000 people older than one hundred years. So the Japanese turned themselves into a frantic mode to develop all kinds of robots to help the elderly as the age issue only intensifies. An example is Taizo, a robot built by AIST, General Robotix and Ibaraki Prefectural Health Plaza, that leads in and demonstrates to grandmas how to do exercise routines. The units are going to be priced at around $8,000, but perhaps a cheaper and sufficient solution would be to watch YouTube videos of the Taizo. Even a real prerecorded human being may suffice in demonstrating exercises. But that wouldn't utilize robotic technology, would it now?
