Camanio Care’s Giraff solves challenges with distance in care for two municipalities

Report this content

Another two municipalities, Kalix and Lidingö, have chosen to invest in the digital care robot Giraff from Camanio Care. The solution that Camanio Care delivers simplifies supervision by removing the travel time, when it would otherwise take a long time to get to the person in need of care. 

Giraff is a supervision robot that relatives, care services or health care staff can use to make virtual supervision visits to individuals who live at home despite regular need of care. It is already deployed in several places in Sweden, among other places in a training apartment at Danderyd hospital. Now two more municipalities, Kalix municipality and Lidingö municipality, have chosen to invest in the solution for individuals in need of care who live in remote or inaccessible places. Kalix municipality does this through the project “Showroom digitalization a part of the future care”, financed by Region Norrbotten. Total value of both deals comes to around 300 000 SEK.

– We see many possibilities and uses for our Giraff. Partly for our care recipients, whom we can offer a broader range of services and increased security in their homes thanks to supervision on distance. Also, for their relatives, who can be more active in their everyday life. Another example that we see is being able to do rehab programs and through the Giraff the physio therapist can see that the exercise is performed correctly. A security and a tool for both care recipients and staff, says Malin Drugge, Quality Development Officer at the social service center in Kalix municipality.

– An increased digitalization in home care is an important part of our operations development. Digital tools like the Giraff creates opportunities for us to increase customer focus by changing the way we work and, through that, work smarter and more effective, says Barbro Aldén, Section Head of Rudboda Home Care in Lidingö.

Giraff allows a caregiver to connect to a telepresence robot placed in the care recipient’s home. The robot is controlled by the caregiver and can, after the care recipient accepts an incoming call, move around the care recipient’s home. Through camera, screen, microphone and speakers, the care recipient and caregiver can talk to each other in a natural way, and it’s also possible to inspect things like medication.

– We see how an increasing number of agents notice how Giraff can help their own operations and how it can give both more value and more time to the interpersonal meeting. Care staff can use their own office to coordinate quick checkups, such as whether medicine has been taken on time, to give more time to human interaction and care when the staff is physically in place in the care recipient’s home. Giraff can in this manner reduce stress, as we together remove travel times in favor of supervision and care, says Fennia Carlander, Account Manager at Camanio Care.
