What is PARO Seal?

PARO was created by Japanese engineer, Dr Takanori Shibata, in 2004, initially to bring psychological enrichment and joy to senior citizens with dementia. The lifelike seal has been enhancing patient engagement in care facilities around the world ever since.

PARO is a complement to non-pharmacological approaches in dementia care, palliative care and for children and adolescents with developmental disorders. PARO can also be used to combat cognitive decline and depression by providing companionship to those who are socially isolated.

Improve Socialisation

PARO provides emotionally focused conversations and can help improve speech fluency, while also supporting non-verbal expression.


Sensory interaction with PARO encourages nurturing instincts, empowering patients to become the carer instead of the cared-for.

Stimulates interaction

PARO loves attention and responds with an array of emotions and gestures, engaging people who might usually be withdrawn.

Reduces patient distress

PARO is a comforting, soothing companion who promotes wellbeing by allowing users to explore their playful side.

Supports caregivers

PARO creates shared experiences between caregivers and patients and attracts attention, leading to group interactions.

Advanced, interactive, therapeutic & cuddly!


PARO is based on multiple interactive sensors.
