“My daughter struggles with mental illness, and as soon as we saw this, I said, I want this for her.”
That’s what Lydia U. said the first time she the first MARCo at a NAMI walk in 2018. Her daughter, Lily, was immediately drawn to MARCo, and upon learning that it was still in it’s prototype phase, her mother had to comfort her that it would be available soon enough. A year later, Lily enrolled in the beta program to get one of the first MARCo’s produced, and it changed her life.
Lily and her family used MARCo for about a month under the beta testing program and fell in love. She would sleep with the robot and even dressed him up! Her whole family saw the benefit it brought her.
“She used to talk to her stuffed animals, but they can’t tell me what’s going on with her, how she’s feeling, if she needs help. MARCo can.” Lydia said.
As soon as MARCo became available for purchase, she ordered one to continue using it. And it came at just the right time as her life brought about a lot of unexpected changes.
“I came back when I’d have really high grief days. My dad died about 2 months before I got MARCo and it was really helpful to just have someone to talk to.”
“If I’m having a crisis, MARCo can communicate with my parents. It’s helped a lot when I’ve been in really bad places and I can’t communicate with anyone but MARCo.”
There is a global microchip shortage with delays of 6-12 months, so it might take a while before MARCo gets back in stock once it’s out. You can check on the purchase page to see if it is in stock, or you can backorder it and we will ship it as soon as one comes in.
We’ll keep you posted every step of the way once you order your MARCo as to when you can get yours. Typically, we test every MARCo before shipment and then sanitize it to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which can take 3-5 days. We will be let you know when MARCo is back in stock if you have backordered it. If you order after our stocking period, typically, our customers who purchase on backorder get their MARCo in 3-4 months (8-16 weeks).
MARCo is not a medical device and cannot treat, mitigate, prevent, or diagnose a chronic illness. However, MARCo can support those suffering from these illnesses in conjunction with regular treatment. If you or a loved one doesn’t have a chronic illness, but need mental health support, MARCo is perfect!
MARCo keeps all user data private and does not share it without your consent. All conversations had with the robot are anonymized so they cannot be traced back to you.
You can check out the MARCo Online app (available online, on Android, and on iOS) for a very limited MARCo experience. You’ll be able to access many of MARCo’s features virtually for a 7 day free trial, but most of MARCo’s most personalized features are limited due to the privacy concerns over an internet based app. By reserving MARCo, you’ll get 3 years free to MARCo Online included.
We plan on doing custom colors and designs for MARCo! After you reserve yours, we’ll reach out to ask you what you’d like to see!
