What does Mylo provide?
Mylo is a monitoring companion robot, paired with a health sensor watch, designed to help people with dementia to retain their independence while living at home or with their families, easing the stress involved with caring and being cared for.
Having a Mylo in the home means that his user (the individual who requires care and support) can retain a large degree of independence by being alone safely during the day or night – going about their daily living routine with gentle prompts from Mylo. Mylo not only allows the user to retain their independence for longer but also makes it easier for the family member to care for the user (i.e. their mother or father) during the day or night from wherever you may be.
With the help of Mylo and using the phone app, the family member carer can remotely monitor into the home of the user. They can also video call through Mylo so the user does not need a mobile phone. They can simply see and hear through Mylo. This has proved to be an effective way for families to communicate.
