Robotics and Technology in Long-term Care in Japan
The international image of Japan is a country at the forefront of technological innovation. In fact, for health-caregiving to the elderly we see a longstanding interest of governmental agencies and representatives of the business sector to introduce robotics and technology into the workplace. In this project, we juxtapose these initiatives from the public and private sector with the situation in care facilities across the country and discuss the gap between claim and reality that becomes apparent.
