                                  JAPAN:  ROBOTS THAT CARE.  

To ease the burden on medical staff, Japanese hospitals and retirement homes have opened their doors to humanoids to fill the gap left by a growing shortage of manpower.

It's no secret that Japan is facing a demographic crisis. Its population is aging and its birth rate is on the decline. The Japanese government admits it doesn't have enough nurses to care for the one in four people aged over 65, a ratio that will only increase in the next few decades. http://www.france24.com/en/2014-05-25-1915-down-earth-robot-japan-elderly-care-health-palro-humanoid/
