IoT for Assisted Living

The UK is facing a social care crisis with reduced budgets and increased demand. Events, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, further exacerbate the challenge local authorities and private care providers face and the concern felt by relatives of vulnerable people. Sadly, many service users have accidents or become ill and are unable to raise an alert. This can result in serious illness and even death. Recognising this situation, we have developed and deployed an unobtrusive IoT solution that helps care providers prioritise visits to service users that may be experiencing ill health or that may have had an accident.

This is achieved by monitoring the typical behaviours and activities of users in their home and raising alerts in the event of significant deviation from the norm. These tested methods allows care providers to take remedial action quickly, thus reducing the chance of continued illness and complications arising from injuries. Unlike many IoT solutions, our devices do not require power, internet connectivity or service user interaction, meaning that even incapacitated individuals are not left unattended for longer than necessary. This really is a life saving solution.

How It Works

A small device is sent to a service user and, when received, is simply put on a kitchen shelf and it begins to measure atmospheric conditions immediately. The device communicates for 5 years on its pre-installed batteries, transmitting atmospheric conditions to a central data hub. This establishes a pattern of behaviour over the first couple of days. Events such as boiling a kettle, opening a dishwasher or cooking a meal, represent significant changes to conditions, allowing us to identify usual behaviours. If activity diminishes beyond pre-agreed tolerance levels, alerts are raised via SMS or email and also through your customised web-based reporting dashboard. These alerts allow care providers and family members to make a phone call or visit the service user to assess the situation and identify whether or not intervention is required.

Care visits are only as good as their frequency allows and an accident can occur immediately after a carer leaves the house. This approach means that potential incidents can be identified very quickly and appropriate action taken.

This solution transmits via LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) meaning that users don't need an active internet connection.
