PARO conference success


Dr Penny Dodds, Lecturer Practitioner, school of health sciences, and Paro the robotic harp seal, otherwise known as Clarence or Snowdrop by petting patients.

Dr Penny Dodds led a very successful PARO conference, attended by over 100 people. PARO is a robotic medical device used with people with dementia and learning disabilities invented by Professor Takanori Shibata from Japan. I am really sorry to have missed this one!
