administrators in remote locations to enter an elderly person’s schedule on an easy-to-read screen.

Music therapy aims to restore and improve mental and physical health by applying the physiological, psychological, and social effects of listening to and playing music. Passive music therapy, in particular, involves the act of “listening,” so it can be practiced naturally and easily, even by people who cannot move their bodies properly. In addition, you can expect even more benefits by enjoying watching Watching Wigo dancing to the music.

Even with family members far away, you can use the Mimamori Wego to make calls just like you would with a smartphone.Using the camera, you can send a picture of yourself to the other person and send smiles and warmth through two-way conversation.
4. Brain training function (cooperation with brain and physical fitness trainer CogEvo, cooperation with Total Brain Care Co., Ltd.) Once the elderly person’s face is recognized by the camera on the Watchdog Wego, the elderly person calls out their name and presses a button on their head to start a brain training game on the tablet. When the game is over, Wigo will give you a score and say things that will motivate you.
