A field study was conducted in which CRI activities developed by the ALIZ-E project were tested with the project's primary user group: children with diabetes. This field study resulted in new insights in the modalities and roles a robot aimed at CRI in a healthcare setting might utilise, while in addition (re-)assessed some practises and technologies established within the project. Furthermore, it served as a means of strengthening the bonds with the project's principal stakeholders. The study illustrates on the one hand the feasibility of the activities that were developed within the project, while on the other hand highlights the importance of engaging with primary users in an ongoing, incremental fashion.
