Abstract

Recently in Japan, as the declining birth rate and the aging of the population progress, increased medical expenditures and nursing care burdens are presenting great social difficulty. To mitigate that difficulty it is necessary for many elderly people to live independently and healthily. Therefore, this study develops a health advice system to support health promotion for elderly people. We conducted verification experiments to assess the operability and impressions of tablet PCs and robots and to elicit impressions against health advice presented from different devices. Furthermore, we examined the usefulness of the health advice system for elderly people who used the robots.
