For more than 15 years now, the magazine LEADER has been devoted entirely to entrepreneurship and politics in Eastern Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein. It is aimed at business leaders in Eastern Switzerland and political “string pullers”. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Rehaklinik Zihlschlacht, a special was written about the clinic. Our care robot Lio is called “Charmebolzen” there.
The future prospects for engagements in care for our Lio are positive. According to a survey conducted by the opinion research company Demoscope see more than half of the Swiss respondents the use of care robots as an opportunity.
The Newspaper “Tagesanzeiger” is one of the most famous ones in Switzerland. They published an article about Lio and its use in nursing homes.

The SRF news show 10vor10 broadcast a report about the use of Lio in care centres.
