Disruptive Technology for Preventive Geriatric Care
The growth of the older adult population has led to a steep rise in the resources required to care for this population. This has led to a worldwide trend towards more efficient and reliable care solutions through the use of advanced technologies, as well as a focus on prevention in addition to care interventions.
In light of the Corona epidemic, Israel currently has over 1 million older adults confined to their homes and isolated from family, friends and caregiving support. And so there is an immediate need for scalable and effective monitoring for proactive detection of physical and mental distress.
