At Sproutel we make toys that help children newly diagnosed with a chronic illness learn and cope through play!  Starting with diabetes and expanding into asthma and obesity, we aim to become the “Cabbage Patch kids for Healthcare.”  We use a combination of embedded hardware, AI, and accompanying software to guide children through the difficult process of mastering their disease.  Our first product Jerry the Bear enables children with diabetes to learn compliant behaviors through play and become empowered throughout their lives.
