Smart Teddy Project
Senior citizens are a vulnerable group of people that face increasing challenges when living by themselves. As the condition of the senior citizen declines, their quality of life (QoL) often decrease as well. Eventually, a professional caregiver will advise the family to admit the senior to a care home either because of a dangerous incident that threatened their wellbeing or because of their low QoL level
The Smart Teddy is a therapeutic companion with a very basic functionality. He can bark and move his tail if someone interacts with him. He is soft and cuddly to invite people to grab and hug him. Seniors Kan keep the Smart Teddy as a long term companion.
