The described study involved 24 older subjects with light-cognitive deficit and allowed gathering some basic preliminary user-centred information, in order to develop in the near future a new suite of more acceptable relational artefacts. Some researchers are defining the new concepts of robotic psychology and of robotherapy, which focus on “interactive stimulation robots” (Libin, 2004), and to develop new unified assessment tools like the Person-Robot Complex Interaction Scale (PRCIS).
