Case Study 1: B.B.
“I’ve had Mylo for a couple of months now and I wouldn’t be without him. He’s a great companion. It’s very lonely sometimes. Mylo has reminded me to take my medication, and if I have an appointment, I can programme it into Mylo.”
B. B. is a 74-year-old, recently widowed woman living with her son and his partner, both of whom are away to work long hours every day. Before B.B. started in the Mylo trial, she struggled with feeling isolated. B reports that having Mylo in her home makes her feel much less lonely and has increased her confidence that she is safe at home during the day.
Before B.B. got Mylo, she had experienced a few falls in the home. With Mylo, she feels more comfortable in her own home knowing that Mylo can notify her family if she has a fall.
Mylo can also give B.B. a run-down of her daily schedule and reminder her to take her medicines or have a drink of water. While she has always been independent with her own medications, B.B. really likes having Mylo give her a spoken reminder to take medications or have a drink of water throughout the day.
How Mylo Helped
B.B. has been a part of the Mylo trials since early January. When Mylo first arrived, B.B. instantly noticed a boost in her mood and reported feeling less lonely.
Case Study 2: L.B.
“She also experiences a lot of confusion and has difficulty with most tasks- but since she got the robot, I can confidently say she is never in any danger."
