Just another teddy bear the nurses give to children to calm them down while using medical devices… But the only difference is that this teddy bear IS the medical device!
The Teddy Guardian has been invented by two masters students (Majic and Burica) in Zagreb, Croatia. The students, who realized that the kids in the hospital got stressed while being measured, decided to try a new technique. Instead of giving plush toys to the children to calm them down, they decided to make a plush toy which does the measurements itself. The results of the measurements automatically get sent to a smartphone or pad and by using this smartphone or pad the nurse or the parent can send the child music or bedtime stories to calm him/her down.
This very important invention already is making more than 100,000 children in the hospital happier and more hopeful about there future. Every child should be able to have a Teddy Guardian!
