The wearable is tracked by sensors located throughout the house to monitor behaviour and any changes in routine over time. The wristband automatically detects falls and alerts carers.
As loved one’s age, continuing to live at home can become increasingly stressful for both the older person and their carer’s. People looking after their ageing family members have a higher chance of mental illness, poor sleep, and stress. The anxiety and stress caused by the uncertainty of not knowing how the person is doing and frequently checking in can be demanding.
Nectarine Health’s remote care solution gives carers peace of mind while allowing seniors to live independently. All the user has to do is wear their lightweight, waterproof wristband which has a 6-month battery life. Sensors or nodes located around the home detect the wristband and continuously monitor changes in behaviours by utilising artificial intelligence.
The data is transmitted to a dashboard that carers can access online or through the mobile app. If an event is detected, such as a fall or the older person presses the assistance button, the carer is alerted immediately. The system also monitors overall wellbeing and activity, stability and sleep.
Nectarine Health’s system is developed with independent living facilities in mind to help health teams and administrators track changes in their residents over time. The unobtrusive wearable can help make sure that seniors receive the correct assistance when they need it. Similar tech innovations supporting older people with remote monitoring include CarePredict & Howz.
