Camanio Care launches new digital therapy pets
Camanio Care AB signs distribution agreement with Ageless Innovation and welcomes new digital cats and dogs to the family. The interactive therapy pets are available in Camanio Care’s e-commerce which continues to be developed. The e-commerce offers a simple and easy way for customers to order from Camanio Care’s range of products.
The therapy pets were developed by an innovation team to provide comfort and joy to elderly suffering from dementia. The interactive pets with integrated technology have received several awards, for instance by the Dementia Society of America. The development of the product is based on clinical research, immersive marketing research and feedback from elderly people and their family.
Smart therapy pets for companionship and interaction
The social benefits of these therapy pets are substantial and without the cost, care and time that regular pets otherwise demand of care organizations. Digital therapy pets can contribute to the prevention of unwanted symptoms of dementia, such as agitation, apathy, sleeping difficulties and anxiety. At the same time, the pets can increase social interaction and provide positive stimulation.
The therapy pets provide a realistic experience through appearance, touch and sound. Built-in sensors and functions create a lifelike experience when interacting with the pets:
- Built-in sensors which respond to touch and movement
- Realistic fur and authentic sound
- Vibrapurr – the cats have a lifelike purr
- BARKBACK – the dog reacts and responds to voices
- Heartbeats – feel the dog’s heartbeats
Engaging with the digital therapy pets is a person-centered activity which improves quality of life, something which can be particularly beneficial for elderly suffering from dementia. Furthermore, they can contribute to a reduced use of psychotropic drugs and provide an opportunity for interaction between the patient, their family and the caregiver. Research shows that sessions of a mere 15-30 minutes can be effective.
The therapy pets add to Camanio Care’s existing products within Active Life and Smart Care in the home. They are yet another step towards the company’s vision to create a dignified and meaningful future with smart and user-friendly products and services.
