概要 Communication robots with the infra-red radiation monitoring system improved the subjective psychological burden of late-night nursing care workers.The system enabled care staff to identify causes of incidents (e.g. slips, trips and falls). It also provided them with a decision making tool to prioritise tasks and evaluate risks.The interview data indicate that the care staff found several limitations in the way the communication robot interacted with care recipients, but all felt positive about the impact of the monitoring sensor.
The introduction of a communicative robot with an infra-red radiation monitoring system into a nursing care facility significantly improved the subjective psychological burden on late-night nursing care workers and alleviated the nighttime workload.While there is great potential for a robotics-aided, integrated system, a mechanism of safe and successful implementation needs further research.
