ElliQ Robot: Elderly Robot
It's an active aging companion that keeps older adults active and engaged. ElliQ seamlessly enables older adults to use a vast array of technologies, including video chats, online games and social media to connect with families and friends and overcome the complexity of the digital world. ElliQ may suggest music, podcasts, or audiobooks to listen to, though it may also recommend taking a walk after a prolonged period of watching TV. It also helps the user keep on top of appointments and reminds them if they’re due to take their medication.
“Our goal is to leverage a combination of our proprietary technology, emotive interaction models, and gerontology insights with elegant design to empower older adults to intuitively interact with technology and easily connect with content and loved ones and pursue an active lifestyle,” explained Dor Skuler, CEO and founder of Intuition Robotics. “We like to think of her as part communication coordinator, part facilitator of lifelong learning and part coach. She’s easy to talk to, intuitive to operate, and understands her owner.”
