Helping elderly people living longer at home.
Liato is an innovative system that uses unobtrusive technology in existing homes to improve the quality of life for elderly people living independently by monitoring day-to-day activities. Liato informs family and carer givers when trends appear.
Liato lets people live longer independently, brings peace-of-mind to their loved ones and provides elderly people a system where help is just a push notification away.
How It works
The system uses unobtrusive TRIPIR sensors in the home in combination with a wearable device. Sensorfusion® technology allows to determine the area of interest and to monitor the activity of the elderly.
An Innovative system which contributes to society
As the average age of humans increases, the number of elderly people that needs facilities in homes and care taker places increases. This is not only a high cost for the family but also for our society. Liato helps in keeping our health sector affordable and invests in a proactive healthcare.
Liato monitors daily activities of people using innovative Sensorfusion® technology and uses modern techniques for pattern and anomaly recognition. By combining location and activities, the system can detect patterns and provides daily and weekly trend analyses about the condition and health of the elderly.
The system communicates these trends non-invasively towards family, carers and professionals, providing valuable information for better care.
Alert when needed
When the systems detects abnormal behavior which indicates an alarming situation, people around the elderly will be notified immediately, providing a safe feeling.
Elderly people can also communicate to their family or loved one’s by tapping on the wearable device and reach out for help.
TRIPIR SENSOR technology
The TRIPIR is a revolutionary sensor with the ability to register the physical area-of-interest where the person is situated. Using Bluetooth Low Energy technology, the sensor communicates with all other sensor nodes in the home.
The wearable device communicates acceleration and other parameters of the elderly person. Combined with the TRIPIR sensors, the system can distinguish the activities of the elderly person.
The gateway collects all data and sends it to the cloud, where machine learning algorithms can detect patterns and give feedback to family and carers using the simple mobile app.
