Biosenix provides remote monitoring devices for older adults living independently at home
As we age we want to live independently as nearly 90% of older adults want to stay in their own homes as they age. This phenomena goes by different names — “independent living,” “non-assisted living,” or the preferred “aging in place” – all these phrases mean the same desire to grow older without having to leave home and move to a healthcare environment.
To assist with independent living, we present SenixBand – a band that monitors basic vital signs and physical state of the user and can remotely alarm family, friends, or caregivers if dangerous conditions are detected such fall, lack of pulse, movement, etc.
How SenixBand works
SenixBand is meant to go wherever you go. Its your personal health monitor, always keeping an eye out for your well-being. Easy to wear, light weight and with a multi-day battery life, all you have to do it put it on, and forget it even exists. We all know how odd it is to wear things, hence SenixBand has been designed to inconspicuous and not garner additional attention as you go around. SenixBand continuously monitors 5 of the most critical vital signs – ECG, Blood Pressure, temperature, SpO2 and respiration in addition to basic physical activity.
SenixBand uploads the data to the could for processing and vitals signs can be monitored by a smartphone at any moment. ECG monitoring and processing allows SenixBand to infer a host of cardiac conditions, predominant of them being Atrial Fibrillation. ECG coupled with optical sensors, allows the band to keep track of your blood pressure continuously. We constantly feed this information through our AI powered algorithms in the cloud to keep you safe, and monitor your health for any abnormalities or fall detection if one occurs.
SenixBand is there for you when you need it the most. Our AI based algorithms are quick to pick out abnormalities, using a combination of monitored vitals and physical activity. From detecting falls, arrhythmia and elevated blood pressure to picking up minute changes in daily health statistics, SenixBand is able to alert you when it sees something wrong. You can also allow family members, friends or caregivers to be alerted and even share live statistics about your daily health with them, enabling you live a carefree and independent live.
Impacting real people
Hi my name is Claire. After my husband passed when I was 70 years old I stayed in my house and continued to live independently. Like many of my friends I preferred to stay in the environment and neighborhood I was familiar with and enjoyed quiet evenings at home and also visits from my friends. As I am getting older I still try to stay active but my physical condition is not what it used to be. My daughter checks up on me frequently to make sure that everything is OK. Sometimes many times a day she just calls to see if I need anything or feel OK. This is a burden on her and sometimes on me as I wish we could go back to old days when she called just to chat about her live, daily activities, and problems where I was just a listening ear. This constant worrying puts a lot of stress on my daughter and I wish there was a simpler and cost effective solution. I have discovered SenixBand and it provides what I need, a simple to wear bracelet that can notify my daughter about my health status, activity level, and more importantly that I am OK and able to take care of myself. I also know if my health worsen, I fell, or lost consciousness she will be notified and can help. Now we can go back to our old ways where we chat about everyday life instead of my health status.
'Aging in place' tech helps seniors live in their home longer
According to AARP nearly 90% of people over age 65 want to stay at home for as long as possible. Living at home and staying in a familiar community may offer benefits to seniors’ emotional well-being — but research indicates that a staggering number of seniors who should be receiving assisted living care are still living at home — in many cases, alone.
According to Institute of Aging 65 and older adults currently account for 14.9% of the population. By 2030, as the last Baby Boomers turn 65, older adults are expected to reach 20% of the population. Of the older adults who were living outside nursing homes or hospitals in 2010, nearly one third (11.3 million) lived alone. The likelihood of living alone increases with age. Among women age 75+, almost half (47%) lived alone in 2010. Chronic illness has replaced acute illness as the major health problem of older adults—and increasingly so as medicine evolves. By 2005, 91% of older adults had one or more chronic health conditions. 65% percent of older adults with long-term care needs rely exclusively on family and friends to provide assistance. As of 2011, some 43.5 million adult family caregivers were taking care of someone 50+ years of age. The economic value of the informal care provided by women is estimated at somewhere between $148 billion and $188 billion annually. Medicaid spending on long-term care has increased significantly: from $3.4 billion in 1973 to $13.2 billion in 1982 to $126 billion in 2010.
