Loneliness and social isolation are common experiences for many older adults. These experiences have negative effects on their health and well being. An Israeli start-up is tackling this problem by developing an active aging robotic companion. This companion 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. intuitionrobotics.com
A prototype robotic companion, ElliQ, was presented at London's Design Museum in January 2017. In February a Live Demo was shared at the OurCrowd Global Summit. The prototype is currently in trials.
