Supporting seniors' independance!

The Dutch company, Sensara, which specialises in intelligent sensor network technology, has entered into a strategic partnership with GreenPeak Technologies to provide integrated solutions of contactless, self-learning monitoring technology for the Senior Lifestyle System, Sensara’s first Family Lifestyle Solution.


The Senior Lifestyle System App with notifications on iPhone - children and their elderly parents are automatically sharing lifestyle information, enabling seniors to feel safe and live longer at home independently, while their children feel secure that their parents are well.
GreenPeak Technologies has announced a family of new, ground-breaking sensor and cloud based intelligent systems for Family Lifestyle integrated with Social Media.

The first release is a Senior Lifestyle System creating a Social Media environment with applications on tablets and smart phones, where children and their elderly parents are automatically sharing lifestyle information, enabling seniors to feel safe and live longer at home independently, while their children feel secure that their parents are well.

This Senior Lifestyle Solution uses small and unobtrusive wireless sensors to help informal caregivers to keep a caring eye on elderly family members or friends who live independently. It was developed for every family that wants to support and stimulate their parents’ independence – while keeping an unobtrusive eye on their health and welfare.

When elderly people live alone and something happens, it can sometimes take a while before somebody notices.
In contrast, intelligent algorithms can be always on watch to inform family and friends when something might be wrong. For example when someone fails to return home in the evening, or when unusual inactivity occurs which could be caused by an accident, stroke, or illness.

Long term changes in senior behavior can be hard to detect, because they often evolve slowly, without warnings or big events. The patented intelligence of the Senior Lifestyle Solution keeps track of the senior person’s lifestyle trends and detects unusual behavior in time to act before anything life threatening occurs. With the Sensara algorithms, up to 6 separate life trends can be monitored, based on the privacy settings that users define. The user remains fully in charge of what activities the system monitors and what it does not.
