Children should be seen and heard.
Across Australia, chronic illness or injury affects up to 30% of students. More than 70,000 are isolated from their school community from months to years. Our vision is to cure these kids of loneliness by keeping them connected to their classmates and education.
We place telepresence robots in classrooms and sick kids can control them from their laptop in hospital or at home. Through the robots the kids can see, hear and take part in school, maintaining vital relationships and reducing isolation.
