To address the need for nursing care, the nursing robot was developed to assist the daily life of the older persons, so that the elderly can continue to live in their own homes. The "Twendy-one" robot can use a finger that has a joint function and a spring in arms that are fit to touch objects of a complex shape. It can clean floors, carry patients around, and make breakfast in bed.
The robot watches the movement of a person with dementia and make reminders if the person repeats the same action. For example, if an elder is trying to take a medicine, it will make a verbal warning by saying "You took the medicine 3 minutes ago". It also watches where a person placed an item (e.g. in the drawer) and tells him/her where it is located.
