3 Innovative Tech Companies Focusing on Seniors

Posted on July 21, 2023 by Continyou Care

In this article, we look at 3 innovative tech companies that are providing services in senior homes to help improve the health and well-being of seniors. It is an exciting industry, with impressive technological advancements being made at an unheard-of rate. Here are 3 examples of companies doing their bit by leveraging their technological skills to benefit seniors.

1. Intuition Robotics

Robotics in long-term care homes and retirement homes is a fast-evolving industry with companies mainly focusing on how robots can help improve seniors’ mobility and help them perform day-to-day tasks with ease.

However, Intuition Robotics have taken a different approach. They have been working on a social companion robot called “ElliQ”. ElliQ is designed to help enhance the quality of life for seniors by providing them with a more interactive and connected experience, helping to combat loneliness and social isolation. It features natural language processing, expressive movements, and gesture recognition – meaning it can hold conversations and provide reminders for such things as medication or appointments.

2. Care Predict

Care Predict develops wearable devices and AI-driven systems that help to monitor and track the activities and health of seniors. These wrist-worn devices collect data on the wearer’s daily activities, such as walking, sleeping patterns, and washroom visits.

However, instead of just tracking, the device uses advanced sensors and machine learning algorithms to detect patterns and anomalies in the user’s behaviour. This helps the monitoring platform detect potential health issues or changes in routine, for example, cognitive decline or perhaps indications that the wearer is now at an increased fall risk.

3. GrandPad

GrandPad is a tablet that has been designed specifically for seniors. Featuring a simplified and user-friendly interface, the device makes it easy for older adults, particularly those that may have struggled with technology previously or have decreased mobility, to stay connected with their families and friends through video calls, messaging, and sharing photos. GrandPad also includes features such as access to news and content, brain games, and medication reminders.
