With five sensors and an AI component you can make an interactive, therapeutic robot looking like a baby seal. The product is called PARO and has been developed by a Japanese industrial automation pioneer,  http://www.parorobots.com/index.asp.

I found an interesting article about PARO that is used in Japan in nursing homes to provide care to elderly residents, see https://www.strategy-business.com/article/Robotic-seals-and-bionic-limbs-How-Japan-is-creating-opportunity-for-medtech for more details.

A nice and very helpful way of using Artificial intelligence, especially in countries where the average age of the population is dramatically increasing over time. More about Artificial intelligence especially in healthcare in a PWC report from 2017  https://www.pwc.co.uk/industries/healthcare/patient-voice-2017/artificial-intelligence-results.html. From PwC’s 2017 Global Artificial Intelligence Study you can also download a full PDF report for free, see https://www.pwc.com/gx/en/issues/data-and-analytics/publications/artificial-intelligence-study.html to start with.

One more thing, a Body Sensor that can remotely monitor your Vital Signs  https://www.americaninno.com/colorado/denver-startups/this-denver-startups-body-sensor-can-remotely-monitor-your-vital-signs/ and how the UCHEALTH Care Innovation Center is DISRUPTING AND REINVENTING HEALTH CARE  https://www.uchealth.org/innovation/.

I've never made a penny being a doctor, so that makes it not a job. My sense of a doctor is that one is a presence caring for health. So I'm never not a doctor. People call me from all over the world who are hurting, and I care for them. Chatting is what more people want than anything. -- Patch Adams, American - Author Born: May 28, 1945,  https://www.patchadams.org/
