STIMULATION PROVISION METHOD FOR PROVIDING STIMULATION TO CONFIRM PRESENCE OF DEMENTIA SYMPTOMS, METHOD USING SAME TO CONFIRM PRESENCE OF DEMENTIA SYMPTOMS, AND STIMULATION PROVISION DEVICE
This stimulation provision method provides stimulation that is unlikely to vary between subjects to a subject in order to confirm the presence of dementia symptoms. The stimulation provision device of the present invention comprises: a plurality of tactile stimulators (11h) that have a V-shape from a viewpoint that is perpendicular to the outer surface side of a stimulator formation board (11b), and that protrude from the outer surface side
a stimulation provision unit (7) comprising a pulley (9) and an endless belt (10) that maintain each tactile stimulator (11h) so that it is possible to circulate each tactile stimulator (11h)
a cover (5) that covers the stimulation provision unit (7) and comprises an opening (5c) that opens in such a way that a subject (H1) can touch only one of the tactile stimulators (11h) with the tip of their finger
and a motor (15) that drives the pulley (9) and the endless belt (10) so that the tactile stimulators (11h) sequentially face the opening (5c) one at a time.
