Charlie is the name of TNO's robot buddy. He helps children with type 1 diabetes to manage their condition.
For example, together they keep a diary that contains personal goals or play a quiz that helps children acquire the relevant knowledge. Care providers and the children can set these goals and in so doing monitor developments in the child's health. They can also modify the contents of the activities, such as the quiz, to suit the child. This makes Charlie more than just a support tool for children with type 1 diabetes. For those eager to meet Charlie, he introduces himself in this video. And he's got a surprise for you.
Last year, the entertainment company RTL featured an item about Charlie. Watch this video to see how Charlie helps diabetic children.
