Japanese scientists: dog with smartphone on the back can help dementia patients




Japanese scientists have done experiments where a dog got a smartphone on the back and as dementia could help. The dog runs off as the owner makes the smartphone sound.

The system works with an application on the smartphone, which can give a message after stopping the alarm appears from the article in the vaktijdschrijft International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications.

In the experiment, the scientists at Saga University and Kyoto Institute of Technology have done, it appears that the dog had a week to get used to the system, which he constantly wears a smartphone on the back. Smartphone was a FleaPhone CP-D02 of 140 grams. The unit was in the test in a case on the back. The training to help run the dog to the owner when the unit makes noise, lasted three days.

The application can remember dementia according to scientists at daily tasks at a particular time. Moreover, the alarm goes off if the owner is shaking the door, causing the dog running down the owner and therefore not without smartphone out the door.

With this solution, think scientists to solve the problem may be with dementia often forget their smartphone. The test is too limited to conclude that it is indeed so. Whether there will be a continuation of the experiment is unknown.
