Slippers Assistant / senior care devices

Slippers Assistant

The number of living alone increases gradually, but not all of them can get enough treatment.
It’s always regrettable to hear such bad news that one’s body was found after several days.
To reduce this kind of loss, we installed a sensor on slippers,
which is able to detect the action and health state of the elderly,
makes social workers and family members more easily to keep track of them,
further improve the quality of care for seniors.
