We used the seal robot, Paro, for therapy of patients suffering from dementia at a cortical neuron clinic. The efficacy of the robot therapy was evaluated by DIMENSION, which detects patient's cortical neuron activity from a 21-channel EEG. The results from preliminary experiments show that robot therapy has a high potential to improve the condition of brain activity in patients suffering from dementia. It is concluded that Paro will be widely used and provide help to people with dementia.
