Lio in Alterszentrum Emmersberg

Lio – the professional personal robot has been actively supporting Emmersberg Elderly Care Center in Schaffhausen since January 2020.

The main goal of the elderly care home is to provide enough time and care to ensure the well-being of those in need. The clinic believes that it is possible by relieving some of less attractive work or peak workload while using modern technologies and robotics. That is were personal care robot Lio comes in hand.

Lio’s varied tasks include:

  • People’s entertainment
    • Playing music
    • Telling stories
  • Providing information and reminders
    • Of upcoming activities
    • Weather forecast
  • Encouraging people to do sports
  • Distributing drinks across the facility

Lio is constantly learning new things and he will be able to do so much more in the future.

The everyday progress of Lio and his daily activities can be followed by everyone interested in his life. Currently Lio is sharing his experiences and adventures in the online diary.
