Tinybots – Small Social Robots for Dementia, presented by Robert Paauwe

Robert Paauwe

According to Robert Paauwe everybody Tinybots believes that being control of your own life is all-important. Everybody is confronted with challenges. And sometimes a disability or illness takes the overhand.

But regardless of illness or disability, we believe that everybody should be able to lead his or her own lives. Tinybot Tessa supports individuals with dementia and their families and helps with activation by giving daily reminders, suggestions, and playing personal music.
