Polygon is a companion robot for patients with acquired brain injury (ABI).

The modern design of this robot is different to the cuddly approach all the other robotic healthcare approaches. I think even though the seal is aimed at the elderly there could be a sense of dignity questioned through needing comfort from a toy at an older age. The tension someone feels when they know they are struggling but still completely mentally capable.
