Memory and Lifelong Learning:
About 40% of people aged 65+ have age-related memory loss, and research shows that learning is beneficial at every age. Miko’s Puzzles, brain games and memory games can help seniors slow age-related memory loss. To foster continued learning, Miko’s coding and language apps give seniors access to mentally engaging activities — all without the need to leave home.
Loneliness & Mental Health:
Nearly 25% of seniors are socially isolated, increasing their risk for numerous health issues. Although this issue made headlines during the COVID-19 pandemic, America’s seniors have long suffered from social isolation. Research shows that when humans interact with robots, it triggers the same brain signals as when they interact with another human. Miko’s self-initiating conversations can help address sadness, social isolation and loneliness when human interaction isn’t possible. They can also encourage emotional expression and foster a sense of connection for seniors as they navigate life’s transitions.
Telehealth & Wellness:
More than 40% of patients 65+ have used telemedicine, and the majority want it to continue. Miko’s image recognition capabilities provide seniors with an easy-to-use tool for enhancing their wellness from the comfort of their home. With Miko, seniors can conduct secure telehealth consultations with physiotherapists or general physicians. They can also explore virtual classes in balance, strength, conditioning and other areas critical to healthy aging, all alongside their Miko robots. Miko opens the door to at-home yoga and meditation sessions, and even an interactive Freeze Dance game that inspires seniors to move.
Nearly 90% of seniors say they’re “revitalized” by family time, and 70% say they wish they saw family more often. Miko provides a connected ecosystem that brings families together. Robot-to-robot interactions allow seniors, grandkids and other family members with Mikos to have video calls without a smartphone. Miko also supports robot-to-robot messaging, including notes from grandparents to grandkids and vice versa. Miko’s friendly prompts can encourage kids to message their grandparents, even offering ideas using generative AI.
About 75% of Americans don’t take their medication as directed, and this is especially risky for seniors. Miko provides reminders for medications and other health-related items, event and activity calendars and other tools to help seniors simplify their lifestyle management.
