Why Robots?

Robot Buddy sessions are fun and great entertainment

Robots naturally trigger curiosity. Our sessions have shown many benefits 

from this type of therapy as aged care residents can sing along to songs together with increased social interaction.

Using music and dance, Robot Buddy encourages engagement and creates a fun activity to stimulate minds and bodies. This can improve the quality of life for residents as they are exercising and reminiscing about cherished memories.

We think they're pretty cute - we hope you do too.

How does Robot Buddy work?

Robot Buddy supervises all sessions with full trained staff

Robot Buddy provides 60 minute group sessions in aged care facilities. We

supervise the sessions and look after all music and dance requests.

 Robot Buddy therapy also benefits carers by easing the burden of care, providing engaging entertainment and allowing more one-on-one time with residents.

Our unique design

Robot Buddy design and content is developed in-house

 Since launching, we’ve visited over 50 aged care facilities across Perth and conducted hundreds of sessions to many happy clients.

Our unique Robot Buddy design is the result of 12 months of testing many robots sourced globally. 

As our design and content is developed in-house, we're continually refining Robot Buddy to suit the needs of aged care clients in Australia.

What does Robot Buddy cost?

Robot Buddy provides cost effective entertainment and therapy for aged care

Sessions start from just $150 - which usually means less than $5 per person for most groups. We supply all robots, conduct sessions, and program music and dance requests.

Enquire Now

Do we sell robots?

We don't recommend buying your own robot unless you're very patient : )

No. Robots are expensive, can be hard to program, require high level technical knowledge, ongoing creation of new content and maintenance to ensure they're working properly. 

Our goal is to make robot therapy easily available to everyone.
