Home care for the elderly

The Israeli start-up Mybitat and Samsung have joined forces to develop technology to help keep senior citizens safe at home.
The technology would utilize sensors and cloud-based software to monitor seniors’ daily routines, and would be able to recognize any changes in clients’ behavior and health, in which case the system would call for help.

“Samsung believes the senior population can benefit from new technologies to improve their quality of life,” said Curtis Sasaki, a senior vice president at Samsung, Yedioth Ahronoth reported. “Our work with Mybitat has the potential to make key elements of the aging process significantly easier on individuals and families.”

“We believe current systems for managing aging require significant improvement,” said Mybitat founder Mati Kochavi.

“We want to redefine these systems and offer affordable options that open up new possibilities for aging individuals. This collaboration with the Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center will help us to accelerate the day when more seniors can live their lives with improved health in familiar, comfortable surroundings,” added Kochavi.
