Teddy The Guardian looks like a normal plush teddy bear. He's got big ears and a squishy nose. And he feels soft and warm to the touch. The difference is what's inside. He's full of sensors to track the vital signs of the kid who is playing with him.
Developed in the EU, Teddy The Guardian is carefully designed to enable pediatricians,medical staff as well as parents in the later phases to have a clear, structured, reliable and frequent enough insight into essential health parameters like heart rate, oxygen saturation, body temperature, and stress levels by deploying innovative and children friendly approach disguised in a plush bear. When a child holds the bear close and interacts with him, readings are sent to a tablet, smartphone or a web application making pediatricians job easier, results more relevant and children less stressed out.
Teddy the Guardian is a plush bear with embedded certified medical sensors that measure child’s heart rate, oxygen saturation, and body temperature seamlessly during the play, capture and send the data using wireless technologies to pediatrician’s app. Every time a child takes Teddy The Guardian by the hand or puts Teddy’s paw on his forehead sensors detect the values, capture them and transmit in real time to a mobile app where data is analyzed, visualized, managed and downloaded by the medical staff and parents.
The idea behind disguising medical tech in a lovable toy is to provide pediatricians as well as parents with more accurate, consistent and reliable data points that will give a meaningful and complete insight in the child’s health condition. However, when a child is stressed out about going to the doctor or spending time in a hospital, his or her vital signs will be skewed and medically less relevant. Taking data points when the child is in a neutral emotional state can give doctors a wealth of good information to establish trends and track improvements.
