Date:11/4/2009

CHICAGO, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- PARO Robots U.S. Inc. and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) have announced that order fulfillment and delivery of the therapeutic robot PARO will begin in the United States on December 1, 2009, from its sales and distribution office in Itasca, Illinois.
