InteliCare’s smart care solution combines discreet sensors, wearable technologies and alert devices to provide multiple layers of intelligence and insights.
This allows carers and care providers to track activity levels, patterns of behaviour, health metrics, sleep and more. Through identifying and highlighting behavioural trends and changes, InteliCare assists caregivers in detecting and preventing incidents, emergencies, and health issues.
The InteliCare journey starts when small, camera-free sensors are placed in the home.
The placement of the sensors can be completely customised to suit the needs of an individual and their caregiver, however, in a standard scenario most people opt to put motion sensors in the bedroom, living room and bathroom. Door sensors are typically placed on house entries and exits (including sliding doors). In the kitchen, door sensors are placed on the fridge or pantry, and electrical smart switch sensors are connected to appliances.
Within a week these sensors learn a person’s routine, what time they typically wake up, how often and when they prepare meals, if they wander in the night and more. This information is sent to the InteliCare platform (mobile app or desktop dashboard).
InteliCare sends the information collected by the sensors to the mobile app and desktop dashboard for care givers to access. The data is displayed in easy to understand graphs which clearly highlight when behaviour is outside the expected parameters.
The platforms update and analyse the data in real time, meaning care givers can unobtrusively check in 24/7.
If InteliCare cannot detect any worrying changes to the routine it will send the app users a daily ‘everything’s ok’ notification. This allows caregivers to remain informed, without having to continuously check the app.
If InteliCare detects changes, such as an individual has failed to get out of bed at the expected time, an alert will be sent to the caregivers. Notifications will be sent to caregivers if there is a non-urgent change in routine, for example ‘meal preparation is down 30% in the last week’.
By detecting and highlighting changes InteiCare shows caregivers signs of deuteriation that might have been missed.
Changes in routine can be an indication of physical or mental health issues, for example, increased bathroom visits may indicate a urinary tract infection, and a reduction in social outings could be a symptom of depression.
By highlighting these changes of routine, which otherwise would’ve gone unnoticed, InteliCare empowers caregivers to adapt their care proactively. This means an individual gets help before an incident, such as a fall, occurs due to deuteriation.
Proactive care can reduce the risk of hospitalisation, which can empower people to live independently for longer.
Maintain Health and wellbeing
In addition to smart sensors, InteliCare users can also incorporate over 60 TGA and FDA approved health metrics devices. This includes iHealth, FitBit and Garmin devices.
This has the potential to provide organisations and individuals with a 360-view of health and wellness.
