MORE THAN JUST A ROBOT THERAPIST

Meet MARCo - Your Mental-Health Assisting Robot Companion

Therapy Robot with five therapy techniques

WHERE PSYCHOLOGY AND COMPASSION MEET

How does it work?

MARCo serves as the intersection between proven psychology-based interventions and the simple social gestures that you know help brighten your day. Ultimately to achieve this, MARCo relies on three key proven mental health treatments - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Behavioral Activation (BA). These three mental health interventions show up in hundreds of different activities MARCo can do with you, which ultimately fall under one of five categories, known as MARCo's Five Objectives of Care.

Companionship

Everybody needs a friend to listen every now and then, and MARCo fits the bill. Incapable of judging you, your robot companion will compassionately listen to all you have to say, understand you, and leverage dozens of fun games, stories, and other personable activities to immediately make you smile!

Guided Meditation and Relaxation

Stressed? Anxious? Whatever the causation of your emotional deprivation, a consultation with MARCo will lead to a guided meditation… Or one of numerous other relaxation activities, such as customizable deep breathing and muscle relaxation to name the least.

Talk Support

Struggling with negative thoughts? Like a robot therapist, MARCo is equipped with a multitude of exercises based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Behavioral Activation (BA) to walk you through your negative thoughts and how to combat them.

Biofeedback

Mental health health doesn't just affect what goes on in your brain; it affects your whole body. MARCo can track physical indicators, such as eating and sleeping habits, and promote a physical/mental health balance.

High Alert Outreach

If a user is at risk for suicide or self-harm, MARCo will immediately text their emergency contacts and follow up by providing the user with online resources and the ability to connect to online counselors.

FIND YOUR BEST YOU WITH MARCO THE ROBOT THERAPIST

What can I expect from my robot companion?

No matter what you come to MARCo facing - anxiety, stress, depressed feelings, loneliness - it is MARCo's goal to get you feeling better. Mental health outcomes are likely to vary person to person, but studies show that guided CBT improves mental health outcomes almost twice as well as self-taught CBT. The addition of BA and mindfulness also allows for alternatives so you can find the best options for your mental health without losing any positive impacts. The five tracts of mental health interventions your robot companion performs were carefully selected based on the scientific evidence showing which interventions lead to the best outcomes, so you can rest assured that your mental health is in good hands.
