Many children experience loneliness when they are absent from school and separated from their friends for extended periods due to illness. Because of this, they may face challenges when returning to their everyday lives. The AV1 robot provides a solution to this problem.
Eirik and his AV1
Eirik, nine, has cerebral palsy (CP) and three times a year he is absent from school, due to training which he undertakes for two to three weeks at a time. From his tablet, Eirik can see, hear, and talk to his classmates when he is at the training centre, and an added bonus is that Eirik's friends think the robot is really cool!See more experiences
