How sensors improve safety in care

Dear Sir or Madam,

Nowadays, a lot of people talk about the future of care. There will be a lot more people who need professional care in future, but we are lacking qualified staff already today. So, who is going to do this work? Part of the answer are small sensors that relieve staff and recognize dangerous situations like falls. See in our current video how Ambient Assisted Living already works in a shared community for people with dementia today.

Enjoy watching!

Caregivers are unable to provide around-the-clock care and supervision. That's where JUTTA, the sensor-based technical support system comes in! It stands for Just-in-Time-Assistance. The system is used in the Dementia Shared Living Community Neukirchen-Vluyn. Sensors detect the motions of people in need of care in their living environment and – thanks to connectivity – provide valuable information to caregivers.
