Keeping older adults safe and warm in their homes
A significant number of older adults are admitted to hospital because conditions in the home, such as damp or poorly controlled heating, have caused ill health. Exposure to inappropriate levels of carbon-monoxide compromises health even more dramatically.
Our solution uses sensors and artificial intelligence to maintain a safe and comfortable environment. Should our system detect unsafe temperature or humidity levels, or if safe limits for carbon monoxide are exceeded, alerts can be sent to families. The user is in control but has the comfort of knowing our solution is safeguarding them against danger, discomfort and high-energy costs that smarter use of environmental controls and monitoring could avoid. Being able to monitor and maintain a healthy, safe and comfortable home environment has a positive impact on physical and mental health and can reduce the need for hospitalisation. It also provides reassurance that patients can be discharged from hospital into a safe home environment.
