Combined picture showing the sensor to the left, and the activity registration results to the right

Sensor with intelligence, learning behaviour from residents and alerting staff when unexpected things happen – combined with schedules, look-in and reminders for staff.

Purpose

To enable Early Warnings and prevent accidents and falls.

Target group

Home care - Elderly people and people with disabilities.

Impact for citizen

The citizen will no longer be forced to have physical visits from staff during night time, and can have a quiet sleep without being woken. Still the citizen can feel completely safe, as the solution will warn the staff if something unusual takes place.

Impact for staff

The staff can make sure that the citizen is doing fine during the night without being on the road to make visits unless the solution shows that someone has fallen, is out of bed, out of room or spends too long time outside the bed in the nighttime.

Economic impact

As many of the visits made by staff during night time can be handled remotely, or reacted to when an alert and image is send by the solution, the staff will have to make less physical visits just to check if users are ok.
The users/citizens who are normally disturbed during the night when staff check in on them, will be able to sleep undisturbed and wake up more rested.

Is the product intended for training purposes?

No.

How much time is needed for the user or staff to get to know how to use of the product?

No.
