New movie: The opportunities of using Giraff – great value for people who work at a distance

Camanio Care’s telepresence robot Giraff™ has been acknowledged for its great potential to make health care more effective by enabling digital home visits. In a new movie, Camanio Care points out the value of using the product for people who do not have the opportunity to attend their jobs physically, due to diseases and other reasons.

“For me being able to use the Giraff has made me feel less isolated during this tough time”, says Hanna who describes her experiences of Giraff in the movie.

To have the possibility to integrate with other people has a positive effect on people’s sense of belonging as well as their need of social contact. How does it work for people who are sensitive to infections? What does the situation look like for people with different forms of disabilities? Or for those who simply live far away from work? The intention of the movie is to emphasize the value of the telepresence Giraff to people who are unable to attend work physically.

Prevents social isolation

Hanna Westerlund is product manager for mealtime solutions at Camanio Care. In the movie, she describes how her leukemia has resulted in her having to stay home from the office and avoid meeting people, due to the risk for infections. Hanna says that the Giraff has made it possible for her to participate in meetings just like anyone else, and to maintain the social contact with colleagues at the office.

-        Once I started working again I had to work from home, and for me it was very difficult to miss out on the social aspects of work. For me being able to use the Giraff has made me feel less isolated during this tough time, says Hanna.

New user areas expand the market

Apart from being an important tool to make health care more effective, the Giraff also contributes to facilitate communication and to strengthen the social contact between people. It is important to find new areas for products within care technology, in order to make it possible for more people to identify the opportunities of investing in new technology and innovative products. The fact that the Giraff can be used by people who for different reasons have to work from a distance results in larger target groups, and it creates new marketing opportunities for the company.
