Ludocare is specialized in the development of connected health solutions and provides a solution to support patients, especially children, in the management of certain chronic diseases (the “Patient(s)”).
This solution consists of two components: a companion robot, LEO or JOE (the “Robot“), and a mobile application “LUDOCARE” (the “Application“) to which the Robot must be paired in order to function.
If the User does not accept any of the provisions of the TOU, the User cannot use the Application or the services it offers.
1. PREREQUISITES – APPLICATION DOWNLOAD
The Robot made available to the User operates through the Application, which the User must download.
To do this, the User must have a mobile phone running on the Android or iOS operating systems and have access to the Internet.
The Application can be downloaded for free from the “App Store®” and “Google Play®” platforms, excluding mobile phone subscription costs, connection costs, and Internet access costs, which are the responsibility of the User.
2. ACCESS TO APPLICATION FEATURES
Once the Application is downloaded, the User must, on first connection to the Application:

- finally, enter their personal details.
Once these steps are completed, the Robot must be paired with the Application.
To do this, the User has the option to scan the Robot’s QR Code using their mobile device’s camera or manually enter the Robot’s number. For more information on pairing the Robot with the Application, please refer to the Robot’s user manual.
