Lyon-based startup Ludocare was co-founded in 2017 by ENSPG (now Phelma) alumnae Élodie Loisel, who is currently the company’s VP R&D. Ludocare develops connected solutions for children suffering from chronic disease. The company’s two companion robots, Joe (for asthma) and Leo (for cystic fibrosis), provide sick children with fun reminders like when and how to take their medication and give motivating rewards. Parents can configure the reminders using a special mobile app. Ludocare recently raised €25,000 via a crowdfunding campaign, and used the funds to start scaling up the technology for manufacturing. A first batch of 500 robots, 100% manufactured in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, will be ready in September and sold through a monthly subscription plan.
