Here at DreamFace, we are committed to improving the quality of life and well-being of aging adults with advanced technologies and continuous innovation. We believe that social robotics and other technological advancements allow for improved aging, well-being, and quality of life.
At Dream Face, we are developing socially assistive robots that ease the workload of caregivers and provide support to aging adults. Socially assistive robots like "Ryan" reduce caregiver workload by supplementing important daily tasks such as conversing with residents and faciliting game play. Aging adults who interact with Ryan recieve conversational, cognitive, and physical exericse support. Daily interaction with Ryan can lead to enhanced memory and cognition and gives a new perspective on independence for those who want to continue to live in their own homes.
