Dog, Joy for All Companion Pets
Robot pets are therapeutic devices for people with dementia and autism. These lifelike companion pets feel, sound, and move like animals and are responsive to petting and hugs. When cuddled, the emotional connection made with such soft toys unlocks feelings of security and affection, helping to alleviate bouts of loneliness and isolation. They also help connect people, such as grandchildren and grandparents.
