Coming from the East and the South of France, Sandrine and Alizee meet in Nantes in 2015 for a course combining engineering and design about connected objects. By chance, they end up in pairs and the duo works instantly. Sandrine's parents, both doctors, had sensitized her to the problem of patient's compliance. She has asthma, therefore it is an issue that particularly affects her. As for Alizee, noticing that no solution was given to children, she took the challenge of offering them objects of the same quality as adults, adapted specifically for them. They were inspired by these two reflections and developed Meyko, a connected object aimed at improving treatment adherence for children with asthma.
After 3 years of research in collaboration with doctors and families and several successful test phases, Meyko will be available in September 2018.
