Giraff is a telepresence robot that relatives, home care and healthcare staff can use to virtually visit individuals that are still living at home despite their regular care needs. With Giraff it is possible for the caregiver to move around freely in the home and interact with the patient using the video system. The patient can easily accept or decline a call, without any prerequisites. With Giraff it is possible to free up time from costly oversight visits, reduce travel time for healthcare staff and provide a feeling of security for patients and relatives.
Digital care in the home
Giraff provides the possibility for increased security and independence in the home. The system is easy to use and administrate which creates a user friendly experience for care staff as well as patients.
To continuously provide care
To be able to check in without having to physically be there and spending lots of time traveling from home to home. Frees up more time for the ones that really need physical visits from healthcare staff.
Create a feeling of peace and calm
Be able to be in place with short notice in a simple and easy way, for instance, in case of an anxiety attack or after an emergency alarm has been triggered and waiting for help.
Visit for both healthcare and social purposes
Being able to move around at the home creates the opportunity to help with things like finding lost things, ensure they comply with their medication and checking that electrical appliances are switched off. The user does not need to get up off the sofa or bed but can easily answer using the remote control.
